What you will see

  • The hippo hide takes you up close and personal to a group of hippos, which are most active at sunset. The hide faces into the setting sun and is great for evening photography.
  • The carmine bee-eater hide, which is open from August to November, is designed for viewing these very colourful birds as they nest. It is best at sunset when light is on the mud bank and birds return to their chicks

When to visit

The hides are at their best from July onwards depending upon the rains. The carmine bee-eaters usually arrive in September and stay until mid to late November.

What it costs

The hides are only open to guests staying at Nsefu and Tena Tena.
