Lodge Description

The Ultimate Family Getaway
As a family-owned camp, we love the idea of families gathering and sharing the life-changing experience of being on safari together. And Tom’s Little Hide is perfect, especially as children of all ages are welcome here. Built as a tribute to Tom Preston, Tom’s Little Hide is a beautifully authentic safari house set just along from The Hide.
It is here that children’s laughter echoes the loerie bird’s distinctive call and where adults’ excited recollections of the day are uninhibited. With no worries about intruding on other guests, Tom’s Little Hide offers the opportunity to really let go and relax. As Tom’s is booked out exclusively and comes with its own private guide and vehicle, the freedom extends beyond happy interactions. The days stretch out before you, yours to do as you wish. Perhaps choose to explore the park all day, right to the farthest reaches, or enjoy a lazy morning by the private splash pool before the rigours of another afternoon in paradise.

You can tell at a glance that a lot of love and energy went into the creation of this special safari house. Tom’s Little Hide is delightful, designed to reflect a contemporary African style with surprising little distinctive touches. It is made up of three large adjacent rooms, all with en suite bathrooms, and each room looks out over the waterhole, which is a constant scene of activity – your veranda is as good as any safari vehicle.

The bedrooms are each individually decorated and furnished with solid Zimbabwean teak furniture. All the rooms are mosquito-proofed and have fans for warmer days. Rooms 1 and 2, both double en suite 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, complete with sparkling splash pool. Room 3 is more of a family tent with an outside bathroom and inter-leading children’s room, which can accommodate two children. Altogether, up to 10 guests – 6 adults and 4 children – can stay at Tom’s Little Hide. Because of its proximity, Tent 10 of The Hide’s main camp can also be incorporated into Tom’s Little Hide to include two more adults, 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 at Tom’s Little Hide.
