Situated in exclusive areas, our lodges are surrounded by fantastic views, beautiful scenery and lots of wildlife nearby. We offer comfort in style, and ensure that the finer details in each room are perfected. Our lodges are designed and built to be eco-friendly, with as little impact on the natural environment as possible. All building and construction materials, as well as ongoing management and maintenance decisions, uphold our two main priorities: our clients and environmental conservation.

Touching the earth lightly is an eco-philosophy that lies at the heart of every Hideaways’ experience.

Pictured here are recent guests of our lodge Rio Azul Mozambique, who spent the morning at Bartolomeu Dias island and when they accidentally caught a small Blacktip reef shark, our guide showed them how to safely release it back into the ocean unharmed... and perhaps a little wiser?

Antelope are More Than Just Food For Preditors | Jenman African Safaris

Fam Trips In Mozambique & Zimbabwe | Hideaways

Trade show season has finally wound down and we’re catching our breath to reflect on the connections made, relationships strengthened and partnerships established.

Check out our latest blog post where we’re reminiscing the amazing memories made during our specially created Fam trips – where travel agents have the chance to experience our properties and safaris themselves.

Though they may look like a lot like your average domesticated tabby, these felines are perfectly adapted predators.

Meet the African wildcat – so closely related to the domestic cat that they can successfully interbreed!

And while these elusive creatures are rarely spotted on safari, if you do see one, you can distinguish a true African wildcat by its slightly longer legs, horizontal stripes, and a reddish tint behind their ears.

#WildCat #AfricanWildCat #WildlifeFacts #DidYouKnow

At Elephant’s Eye, an incredible benefit of staying on a private concession means that we can take guests on exclusive night game drives.

After the sun sets, many of the animals, typically predators, become a lot more active as they ready themselves to hunt, resulting in some magnificent sightings.

It’s been a great privilege to sponsor the home games of Sankoyo Bushbucks Football Team at Maun Sports Complex in Botswana.

Playfulness and humour are often associated with humans, but research now suggests that elephants possess a teasing, lighthearted spirit as well.

And we think the proof is in this adorable video of an elephant frolicking, balancing and playing around the waterhole in front of our lodge, Elephant’s Eye, in Hwange.
