With a deep love for Southern Africa, its people and its wildlife, Hideaways was born to share this cherished safari experience with eco-conscious travellers who share an appreciation for the natural splendour of remote locations and the unspoiled beauty of Africa with extraordinary safari experiences in Southern Africa’s most exclusive wilderness conservation areas.

Hideaways’ founders Garth Jenman, a former safari tour guide himself, whose wholehearted passion for Africa, ethics and high service delivery led to the inception of a bespoke portfolio of lodges and experiences that would offer authentic African barefoot luxury that allows guests to fully connect with the inherent magnetism of this ancient land.

From the humble beginnings of Elephant’s Eye Tented Camp, Hwange, our first hand-built eco-lodge in Zimbabwe, a country close to our hearts, we were able to work closely with the local communities to bring our dreams to life and some of our first staff were themselves, shareholders. Since then the Hideaways family of lodges and safari experiences has grown to include new locations in intimate and welcoming settings across three countries. Each is designed to touch the earth lightly, where attention to detail and friendly service in the heart of the African wild ensures an authentic and personalised stay for our guests.
