Hides

At Tuli Safari Lodge there are several hides situated at key sites across the reserve. You can visit a hide with your guide as part of a morning or afternoon game drive or bush walk, or spend time on your own with just your binoculars, some drinks and snacks for company.

Here are our top 10 reasons why spending time in a hide is a great choice:

  1. The wildlife doesn’t know you’re there so you have the privilege of observing entirely natural behaviour – whether it’s comparing the cautious approach of antelope to the brazen arrival of hyena or watching fascinating interaction between elephant herds vying for the freshest water or the best wallowing mud …
  2. The view from a hide is a bit like a stage at a theatre, only with a cast and script that change from moment to moment. There’s always something happening if you take the time to look …
  3. The wildlife comes to you instead of you going in search of it and if you’re patient you often see more than you do on a drive …
  4. Because you are often the only people at the hide, your wildlife experience also feels very special and privileged …
  5. You slow down and appreciate all the little creatures as well as the obvious bigger ones we often focus on when on a game drive – remember that song in The Lion King about the Circle of Life, well spending time in a hide makes that reality …
  6. Because you’ve slowed down you notice the smells and sounds of Africa as well as the sights …
  7. Spending time in a hide is really peaceful – your mind can wander or rest, you can read a book, paint a picture, write a poem or just be …
  8. You can sleep out at one of our hides for the ultimate safari adventure – we’ll provide a spotlight so you can keep an eye on all the nocturnal activity … (please note that this activity is currently not available whilst our sleep out hide is being refurbished)
  9. They are fantastic for spotting birds …
  10. … and photography!
