The Hide is one of the highest rated lodges in the Hwange National Park. This luxury lodge has two sections; the main lodge which overlooks a wildlife rich watering hole and the private hide which offers a more intimate setting for couples. Guests of The Hide can expect an entirely unique and special experience at the Dove’s Nest. Guests can spend the night under the African sky in a luxury treehouse with views of the intriguing wildlife below.

Elephant Valley Lodge

Elephant Valley Lodge

Elephant Valley Lodge lies in the peaceful wilderness overlooking the Lesoma Valley, which is home to the largest population of African elephant in the world. The lodge consists of luxury tents spread through the forest and valley, each with a private veranda to admire your surroundings at the fullest. With such a prime location, guests will experience outstanding game drives. The lodge itself is an excellent viewing opportunity, with Africa’s wildlife regularly frequenting the lodge’s waterhole.

What people are saying

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for the most wonderful holiday we had in Eagles Palace in Greece. In terms of OROKO, the service, value for money was excellent and how everything was looked after for us.  I look forward to booking my next holiday next spring! To finish, a big big thank you for one of the best holidays ever!
