The Underground Hide

An exciting addition to our offering is an underground hide that borders on the very edge of our most active waterhole.

A water point is located close to the front opening and elephants regularly drink from this point or walk right past the front of The Hide. The roof which is just above ground level is reinforced and can carry the weight of any elephant that might wander across the top.

The Hide is accessed from a path within the Lodge garden, or from the swimming pool, so guests can safely move along the walkway and into the tunnel without being seen by the animals and in complete safety.

The front of The Hide has an expanded metal grid which is completely open and out of sight but can be quickly dropped if anyone is feeling nervous.

The pathways, tunnel and hide are all lit at night so are available for use by guests 24 hours a day.
Those guests with walkers and in wheelchairs can also use The Hide as the walkway has ramps that ensure ease of access.

Viewing of all the visiting animals and birds close up is truly spectacular and offers a whole new dimension in game viewing.

  • Dear Sue, We stayed at your place on 16th May - unfortunately just one night. Just a quick note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Your staff are very nice and the Bush House is just magical. I can honestly say I shed a quiet tear when I left. Hope to be back one day. Thanks.

  • Another memorable stay and so many highlights. A leopard, cantankerous ostrich, a playful baby rhino, dwarf mongoose, a charging elephant and my first walking safari here where I learnt so much about the flora and fauna – thanks Stefan. Thanks also to all The Bush House staff who contribute towards making this a “home away from home’ as always.
