“Embrace the art of patience at Ximuwu, nestled in the African bush. Our two strategically placed underground hides, designed for both morning and afternoon wildlife watching, offer perfect lighting and unobstructed views. The morning hide, a serene spot near the lodge, is ideal for birdwatching at dawn with your coffee, while the afternoon hide captures the ‘golden hour’ magic as the day ends. Both locations come fully equipped for comfort and photography, and are wheelchair accessible, ensuring an inclusive and mesmerizing African wildlife experience for all.”
