Little Makalolo Camp: Our View

Little Makalolo Camp lies in the heart of Hwange National Park, in one of its best game viewing areas, overlooking a vibrant waterhole.

The camp's six luxurious tents have en-suite facilities, with both indoor and outdoor showers. Solar power is used for electricity ensuring a lighter environmental footprint. The living areas include a dining room, lounge, plunge pool and 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.

Activities centre on open 4x4 Land Rover game drives and guided nature walks throughout the Makalolo concession. The area's large number of waterholes attract wildlife in both quantity and variety especially in the winter months when Hwange is literally home to a Noah's Ark parade of animals as they come down to quench their thirst.

Little Makalolo Camp: The Details

The Makalolo concession of Hwange is one of the best areas for seeing impressive herds of buffalo and elephant as well as apex predators such as lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. Other general wildlife is equally abundant in Hwange.

Bird life in the area is prolific, too, (400+) and varied, with species frequenting the Hwange Teak Woodlands as well as those more typical of the drier Kalahari being present.
