Sleep Under the African Sky

Posted by Dana Elford · Jan 08 · in Hwange, Zimbabwe · about Awesome Travel Stuff
We have a unique travel experience just for you! Have you ever spent a night under the African sky? With nothing but a mosquito net between you and the stars? Imagine falling asleep to the sounds of the bush and being woken by them as the morning sun starts to paint the sky on its ascent....

The sleep-out deck with its luxurious star bed is right by a waterhole so a variety of animals will come and go especially in the early morning- providing a rather unique alarm clock!

An African waterhole at sunrise is a fantastic spot for wildlife viewing and what better way to take it all in, than from the cosy comfort of your bed. Guests are escorted at sunset to the deck for sundowners, before being left to enjoy the tranquility of the surrounding bush veld as the day turns to night. But don’t worry, a guide is never too far away, in case you hear a curious bump in the night, most likely an elephant making its way through the bush.

The land that is now home to Hideaway’s eco lodge Elephant’s Eye covers 6000 acres and borders the internationally renowned Hwange National Park, which has is renowned for its large elephant and lion populations. As there are no fences separating the park and the concession, the resident wildlife is free to roam.
