Being situated right on a very active waterhole offers guests of “The Hide” safari camp, the option to simply sit and observe the wildlife without ever having to leave the comfort of camp. The scene constantly changes and unfolds with no two days ever the same. Here thirsty elephant (Loxodanta africana) rush the last few meters into the inviting waters of the waterhole, while zebra (Equus quagga) and giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) skirt the scene just trying to stay out of the way of the crazy elephants!
