Once the home of Nhanzwa bushmen, and the hunting grounds of Matabele royalty, Hwange is now the natural habitat of big game – and wildlife watchers.
Open your eyes at first light and you could be in a luxury hotel offering a carefully-designed ‘safari’ room, complete with canvas walls and zip-down windows. But your ears will remind you that you’re in the middle the bush; in one of best game-viewing areas in the whole of Zimbabwe. As you listen to the dawn chorus of robins and hornbills you’ll congratulate yourself on including The Hide Safari Camp in your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Zimbabwe.
Stroll out onto your wooden-decked veranda and you’ll be overlooking a busy watering hole, where elephant, kudu and giraffe, amongst many other creatures, arrive, eager for an early morning drink. And your day of game-viewing and discovering nature in all its forms has hardly begun!
