Things to do at Little Makalolo

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest and most popular national park; our private concession means that sightings of the prolific wildlife are exclusive and private.


Game drives in open Land Rovers

Hwange National Park is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe at 14 651 km² with varied habitats and vegetation types – meaning that game drives are exciting with always something new to be seen. (Wind-resistant ponchos are provided during winter months.)


Morning walking safaris

Hwange was proclaimed some 80 years ago and has served as a haven for one of the densest concentrations of game in Africa. There is no better way to experience this park than on foot with an experienced safari guide.


Evening drives with spotlight

The Hwange ‘night-act’ includes species such as lesser bushbaby, spotted hyaena, leopard, lion, Selous mongoose, pangolin, caracal, porcupine, scrub hare, springhare and even honey badger.


Village Visits

An authentic village experience takes place in a manner that is respectful to all parties. Usually around four hours and guided by one of the local villagers or a Wilderness guide, it often includes a guided tour of the school, meeting the headman or headwoman and enjoying cultural exchanges with the villagers.

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. ”
