On the outskirts of Victoria Falls and within Hwange National Park, sits a bespoke lodge atop a hill which boasts one of the best views in Hwange. Merely an hour’s drive from Victoria Falls and refurbished from a bygone era, Nantwich Lodge is a home away from home. Built from the foundations of an old Zimparks outpost, and using as many eco principles as possible, the lodge embodies the very essence of conservation and responsible tourism by re-purposing, preserving and celebrating the natural heritage of the site. Bordering both Hwange National Park and Matetsi National Park, the game viewing is phenomenal, a celebration of what our backyard has to offer.
Hideaways is inviting local Zimbabweans, akin to extended family, to share in and experience the intimate comfort of our eco-lodge. We would like to share the advantages of exclusivity with a private chef to prepare all your meals, curated by you, served by us. Taking time and taste into your own hands, this self-catered family affair lends itself to the undivided attention of our staff, use of our amenities, with a personal twist.
Self-catering is a home away from home experience, garnished with luxury. Providing ingredients of your choosing, curating your own menu yet benefitting from a private chef – the frills and thrills of being on holiday while feeling at home. Taking your holiday into your own hands, while in the professional hands of others, simultaneously allows for independence and the advantages of hospitality. Each day is a blank page; the activities, schedule and experiences waiting to be scribed by you alone.
Opting for the self-catering route is an investment in both economic and emotional wealth. Exclusive use of the lodge yet accountable for food and beverages of your choice dramatically reduces the price of the experience. Each day is a blank page; the activities, schedule and experiences waiting to be scribed by you alone. The dining room is set for mealtimes at your leisure, the water is chilled with ice and lemon, the coffee is percolated and the pool and its view become your private entertainment area.
There is space to chill, optional game-drives, gin bars to attend to (stocked to your own taste, by you) and balconies to abscond to for privacy. All the above is done at your own pace with your favourite people, accompanied by attentive staff ensuring your chosen schedule runs smoothly. You have the freedom to seek solitude, chase sunsets, create cocktails or explore the wild spaces of Hwange National Park, satiating your curiosity for the wild.
The time spent with your tribe to reconnect to the wilderness and each other is essentially priceless.
