Introducing Elephant’s Eye, Hwange’s, new Zim Pro Guide

Elephant’s Eye, Hwange is excited to announce that they have a new Zim Pro guide! After searching far and wide for someone who would be the perfect fit they were lucky to find Mr. Mariet “Mash” Mashonganyika. Mash is a Registered Zimbabwean Professional Guide with over 15 years of experience in the field.  Six of those 15 years were with &Beyond Matetsi River Lodge as a Photographic Pro Guide.


Due to the strict regulations that involve rigorous training, long apprenticeships, and finally demanding exams both practical and theoretical, Zimbabwean Pro Guides rank as some of the best in the world. This is one of the reasons, we can confidently say that you will be in very good hands with Mash as your guide. His training and experience will ensure that clients will be able to explore Elephant’s Eye concession on foot as well as by vehicle, allowing them a truly unforgettable experience.


Mash is a gentle confident guy with a big friendly smile and complements the existing guiding team at Elephant’s Eye.  As with most Zim Pro Guides, Mash does not only have a passion for the larger animals but also has a keen interest in birds and the insects which thrive in this environment.


Get to Know Mash:


“I am 44 and come from Masvingo, a small town situated in the central part of Zimbabwe near the Great Zimbabwe Ruins.


I grew up on our family farm in the same area. It is here at the farm where my passion and love of nature developed at a tender age. Playing tracking games, chasing rabbits and spending much time in the bush just made me addicted to bush life.


After completing high school I already knew that I was never going to be happy with a city job. I immediately started to study for my Guide’s Licence. I passed in 1998, completed my apprenticeship, and in 2001 I passed my Full Professional Guide Licence.


I have since worked for various camps around Zimbabwe and I have developed a keen interest in birds and walking safaris.”

It’s all over for African Luxury Hideaways


In 2013, Garth Jenman fulfilled a life-long dream to develop a luxury portfolio consisting of properties with an eco-philosophy, namely African Luxury Hideaways. Protecting the wilderness areas and wildlife is an integral part of our lodge operations. Our first lodge Elephant’s Eye, Hwange opened three years ago and is Zimbabwe’s first true eco lodge, offering guests an unforgettable experience.

Since then, the company has grown and its unique offerings have evolved, allowing us to take the brand to an exciting new level. As guests continue to look for unique and experiential travel ideas, the word ‘luxury’ often no longer forms part of their quest for a holiday of a lifetime. Guest feedback has shown that this word is not needed to describe the bespoke Hideaways’ experience. Our vision, to continue to develop the brand into a market leader of small bespoke eco-lodges in Africa, will evolve in upcoming years. As a result, the company name has changed from “African Luxury Hideaways” to “Hideaways”.

The name change coincides with the launch of our new Hideaways website – which will go live in October. Our website will be more representative of the brand with added booking functionality and a fresh design. We’re all very excited!

Over the next weeks, we will be saying goodbye to the old name and welcoming Hideaways. Our new logo will keep the Baobab tree – a symbol of life and prosperity – and we look forward to sharing this new journey with you.

***Stay 3 Pay 2 Special *** 

Valid for bookings made before 31st December 2016

For stays between 1st of September 2016 to 31st December 2017 (Rates dependant on the season of stay ie. Green/Mid/High)

Elephant’s Eye, Hwange celebrates its 3rd birthday

African Luxury Hideaways

August is always a very exciting month at Elephant’s Eye. As the waterholes in the area start to dry up the Elephant’s Eye concession with its permanent waterholes gets busier and busier. Huge herds of plains game make the concession their home and the predators become more active as they look for an easy snack. Game walks, daytime game drives and night drives on the concession are very rewarding indeed.

August is also Elephant’s Eye birthday month and celebrations last the whole month. Surprise dinners, complimentary Champagne, birthday cakes, singing and dancing and a specially designed refreshing Elephant’s Eye 3rd birthday cocktail. With all the celebrations in camp Elephant’s Eye make sure all the guests get time to relax with a free 30 minute ultra-relaxing massage.

A really exciting 3rd birthday present has been being selected by Africa Geographic as having one of the most amazing African sleep-out decks. Read the full article at http://africageographic.com/blog/10-amazing-african-sleep-decks/


Happy Birthday Elephant’s Eye, Hwange

Beho Beho Specials

SPECIAL OFFER AT BEHO BEHO from 18th July 2016 to 21st March 2017

In an effort to combat the negative impacts of exchange rates, local VAT additions and Brexit worries making a Tanzania safari one of the ‘more expensive’ options, we have decided to extend the date range of our special promotions at Beho Beho. We hope that by doing this we will be able to assist our travel partners to stimulate their business (as well as ours) by offering a better deal for what many recognise as one of Africa’s best safari experiences.

All new bookings (as from 18th July) will qualify for the following special promotions

Stay FOUR nights Pay THREE

Stay FIVE night Pay FOUR

Stay SEVEN nights PAY FIVE

This includes all dates up until the end of our season – i.e. 21st March 2017

Remember at Beho Beho there is no single supplement and single travellers really enjoy our house party style of safari and ‘heavy’ hosting. As you know tables for one do not exist at Beho Beho!

We have a great international team at Beho Beho this season with the Phil Bennett/ Tricia Piper UK/USA management now in their third year with us, joined by Roel van Muiden (NL), Heribert Madai (TZ) and Godlisten Kisanga (TZ) as walking guides, Nico Vorster (SA) looking after food and beverage and everyone’s favourite Saningo (TZ – Maasai) doing the driving.
