What Guests Love About The Hide

Guests at The Hide frequently recount the sheer enchantment of their stay in the Dove’s Nest. Set apart, this tented treehouse offers a unique immersion into Zimbabwe’s untamed wilderness.

Many visitors have chosen to mark special occasions here, such as anniversaries, savoring the serenity and uninterrupted connection with both nature and each other.

Nature enthusiasts have marveled at the distinctive experience, from the symphony of wildlife noises at night to the sight of a parade of wildebeest, giraffes, and zebras by dawn.

This isn’t just a retreat; it’s an adventure, allowing guests to literally sleep amidst the wild. Each morning, wake-up calls come naturally, courtesy of baboons and other wildlife, and attentive staff ensure that needs, from morning coffee to hot meals, are met promptly.

Beyond the undeniable allure of the Dove’s Nest itself, visitors have also consistently praised the exceptional service of The Hide’s team. From the guides, whose deep knowledge enhances every game drive, to the ever-smiling staff who make every stay memorable, the hospitality is unmatched.
