About Little Makalolo Camp

Little Makalolo is a comfortable five-roomed tented camp in the heart of Hwange National Park, in one of its best game viewing areas. Little Makalolo is one of the few camps located within the Park, and offers privacy for guests who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness.

The tented rooms each have en-suite facilities, including a flush toilet, and shower with hot and cold running water - as well as an outdoor shower under the stars. The main living area is under canvas and houses the dining room, lounge and pub, and a small plunge pool.

The camp overlooks a small waterhole and guests can enjoy game viewing during the "siesta" hours a tree house hide. Activities at Little Makalolo centre on game viewing in open 4x4 vehicles throughout the Makalolo concession area, as well as walks with armed guides.

The area is ecologically diverse, ensuring a varied food "pantry", which feeds great numbers of animals year round. Makalolo is one of the best areas for predators, Buffalo and Elephant - all featuring regularly in the experience.

Summer sees the large antelope herds migrate onto the open grasslands in the area, closely followed by their predators. Elephants, Buffalo, Sable, Roan, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Impala and sometimes even Gemsbok can be seen here. The area is one of the best for predators - Lion, Leopard, Wild Dog and Cheetah are regularly sighted, along with the smaller African Wild Cat, Serval, Honey Badger, Civet and Hyena. The area has a number of waterholes which attract game in large concentrations, especially during the winter months. Guests can sit at a waterhole and watch the passing parade of animals as they come to quench their thirst. For the bird watcher, Makalolo offers a wonderful range of birding, from Miombo species right through to the Kalahari species.

Makalolo Plains is the "sister" camp to Little Makalolo. It is located about 20 minutes' drive away from Makalolo Plains and is completely independently run, with its own staff, management and guides.
