TOM’S LITTLE HIDE – HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

Tom’s Little Hide is located within The Hide Lodge in a prime position in Hwange National Park and has fantastic game viewing right on your doorstep. The lodge overlooks a wildlife-rich waterhole and offers spacious deluxe, family and honeymoon tents.

Adventures include day and night game drives, guided bush walks and exceptional game viewing in the seclusion of the camp’s unique underground hides. After an exhilarating day of game viewing, guests can retreat to the cool refuge of the camp’s swimming pool.

Experience a night at the exclusive Dove’s Nest and enjoy a wild safari stay under the starry African skies in a treehouse. The Hide is a founding member of the Conservation and Wildlife Fund and Friends of Hwange.

LOCATION

Tom’s Little Hide is located in a private concession within the Hwange National Park on the eastern boundary. You can reach the camp by a 35 minute light aircraft flight between Victoria Falls Airport and Umsthibi Airfield and The Hide is just 40 minutes game drive from Umtshibi or 1.5 hour’s drive from Hwange Main Airport through the National Park. You are met at the airstrip and it is a game drive into camp.

CAMP

Tom’s Little Hide is best suited for 6 adults and up to 4 children. Rooms 1 and 2 – both double ensuite bedrooms – form the main part of Tom’s Little Hide and can also accommodate one child in each on a roomy day bed. The bedrooms are linked by a dining room and outside veranda and there is a sparkling swimming pool.

Room 3 is more of a family tent with an outside bathroom and inter-leading children’s room which can accommodate two children. Room 3 and 4 are entirely enclosed for the safety of the family and children.

Tom’s Little Hide comes with its own private guide and vehicle, in order for you to take full advantage of all the activities at your own pace. Flexible and private dining is key for your family safari and children of all ages are welcome. Tom’s Little Hide can be booked on a minimum of 4 guests.

The Hide has two photographic hides overlooking the waterhole – one you can walk to from the lodge deck and the other your guide will escort you to, as it is further away.

The Hide’s secret getaway The Dove’s Nest is located just 10 minutes away from the main lodge and overlooks the open tree-lined vlei and pan where giraffe and elephants come down to drink. After enjoying dinner at The Hide a guide will take you on a night drive to The Dove’s Nest which is built to accommodate two people and is protected by large canvas gauze windows. Your guide will arrive in the early morning and drive you back to camp for breakfast.

ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE

Guided Walks – morning and afternoon guided walks are offered at The Hide Safari Camp. While located within the Hwange National Park the camp is also surrounded by a private concession where you can enjoy walking safaris.

Day and Night Game Drives – morning and afternoon game drives as well as night drives with a spotlight are offered.

The Underground Hide and Wine Cellar – you can go directly from the deck into the underground hide and observe wildlife at the water hole. There is a real wine cellar in the walls of the tunnel cooled at 17 degrees Celsius, ambient-lit and stocked with a small selection of fine wines from around the world.

Birding – The Hwange National Park has a notable bird population with over 400 species recorded to date – the variety is truly astonishing.

Neil Fairlie – Photographic Guide at The Hide – a native Zimbabwean Neil Fairlie is a professional wildlife documentary filmmaker with a profound knowledge and deep respect for Africa and its wildlife. His formal experience spans a decade including the recent series Our Planet, but his intimate knowledge of the bush, natural instincts and his skill in capturing unique moments of animal behaviour on film make him a brilliant photographic safari guide.

GIVING BACK

The Hide Community Trust is a non-profit organisation that was established in 2015 by The Hide Safari Camp. The aim of The Hide Community Trust is to support rural communities who live amongst wildlife on the borders of Hwange National Park to ensure the long-term conservation of the natural resource base while facilitating sustainable community development.

The core ethos of the Trust is that effective and long-term conservation cannot exist without sustainable community development. We believe in primarily working with women because they have a real need to provide for their families however most often it is the women who are uneducated and unemployed. The trust aims to help empower women, their children and ultimately the community at large.
