Please see below one of the emails that made us all smile.


It did arrive in the morning of last Saturday! If you ever wanted to swim in the pool that has full approval of the local resident hippo, just give us a call.

Dear Peter,

Please take note that we will unfortunately be closing the pool area at the Hideaways lodge Elephant’s Eye, Hwange indefinitely. Over the past few months, ‘the hippo’, which we have named Mugabz, who was previously living in the waterhole in front of our lodge, has now decided to move and take up residence in our pool.

Therefore, the pool area will no longer be operational due to the obvious danger and will become in due course a permanent enclosure for Mugabz. Should guests want to cool down, the waterhole in front of the lodge which is now hippopotamus free, is safe to swim in provided there are no predators in the vicinity. Our bath and outside showers are also a great way to escape the Zimbabwean heat.

escape the Zimbabwean heat.

We look forward to Mugabz becoming one of the main attractions at our lodge in the coming months.
