Little Makalolo, Hwange, Zimbabwe

Little Makalolo is a Classic Camp

Endless waterhole traffic

Little Makalolo lies in the heart of one of the best game viewing areas in Hwange National Park. 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 for tent lights and 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 deck for those convivial evening fireside tales under the stars. The plunge pool is a fantastic addition especially for those hot summer days. The log-pile hide at the waterhole in front of camp offers thrilling game viewing to literally a Noah's Ark parade of animals as they come down to quench their thirst.

Highlights

  • 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
