Tom’s Little Hide

Hwange National Park

For the gathering of families and sharing the life changing experiences of the African bush Tom’s Little Hide is your best choice. Your children’s laughter will echo the loerie bird’s distinctive call and the adults’ can recollect the adrenaline packed game drives of the day. With no concern about disturbing other guests, Tom’s Little Hide offers the opportunity to really let go and relax.

As the camp is booked out exclusively its logical that it comes with its own private guide and vehicle. Your freedom to decide on when to safari goes beyond the joy of sharing this with your family. Choose to explore the park all day to the furthest corners or simply enjoy a lazy morning by the swimming pool.

Tom’s Little Hide is designed to reflect a relaxed African style with small and distinctive touches. It is made up of three large adjacent rooms, all with en suite bathrooms, each room looks out over the waterhole, which is a constant scene of activity.

Bedrooms are individually decorated and furnished with Zimbabwean teak furniture. All the rooms are mosquito-proofed and have fans for warmer days. The bedrooms are linked by a dining room and outside veranda, complete with sparkling splash pool.  The family tent has an outside bathroom and inter-leading children’s room which can accommodate two children.  Combined, 6 adults and 4 children can stay at Tom’s Little Hide. Extra  adults can be accommodated if necessary.

Meals and activities are enjoyed privately and in your own time, children of all ages are welcome here and you can relax and enjoy a special, spacious, group safari experience with family and friends.
