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. Solar power is used to heat water, ensuring a lighter environmental footprint.

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. The pool is a fantastic addition especially for those hot summer days. There is a log-pile hide overlooking the waterhole in front of camp which is home to literally a Noah's Ark parade of animals as they come down to quench their thirst.


  • Our private concessions allow for exciting game drives and walking safaris without the crowds
  • Impressive herds of buffalo and elephant are often attracted to the many waterholes in the area, especially in winter
  • Spend a night star gazing from our romantic Star Bed
