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.
Highlights of Little Makalolo:
- 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
Accommodation at Little Makalolo:
These camps are designed in traditional safari style and are mostly stylish canvas constructions, often raised off the ground on wooden decks. Located in exceptional wildlife and wilderness areas, all offer superb facilities and accommodation. The camps range in size from 3 to 12 tents.
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.
This camp combines well with Ruckomechi Camp
