Little Makalolo Camp, Hwange, Zimbabwe

Little Makalolo is a Classic Camp

Endless waterhole traffic

Little Makalolo lies in the heart of Hwange National Park, in one of its best game viewing areas, overlooking a vibrant waterhole. It offers privacy for guests who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness. The camp's six traditional-style tents – including a family unit – are spacious and en-suite, with indoor and outdoor showers.

Linking the tents to the main area are teak walkways. Here a false mopane tree in the centre of the camp shades a separate dining and living area, with an open fire area for those convivial evening fireside tales. There is a log-pile hide overlooking the waterhole in front of camp where guests can enjoy wildlife viewing during the siesta hours and pool for cooling down in the midday sun.


  • Solar power is used for electricity ensuring a lighter environmental footprint
  • The waterhole in front of camp is a magnet for wildlife great and small especially in winter
  • See impressive herds of buffalo and elephant

A Quote From Our Guests

“ If Wilderness Safaris were to bottle the atmosphere created in the camp which was always full of such courtesies, attentiveness, fun, enthusiasm & laughter you would make a fortune, it would be the best medicine you could give anyone. ”
