Why stay here?
Little Makalolo lies in one of Hwange National Park’s best wildlife viewing areas. It offers privacy for guests who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness. The area is ecologically diverse, ensuring great numbers of animals year-round.
The camp’s six spacious en-suite tents (including a family room), with both indoor and outdoor showers, are nestled in the tree line. Teak walkways lead to the main area where a false mopane tree shades a separate dining and living area with views of the much-frequented waterhole. During siesta hours, guests can enjoy up-close and outstanding wildlife viewing at the log-pile hide that overlooks the waterhole in front of camp.
Activities centre on game drives in open 4x4 vehicles and guided morning walks. The area’s large number of waterholes attracts game in both quantity and variety, especially in winter when water sources become scarce and Wilderness Safaris takes responsibility for pumping 22 of Hwange’s boreholes in the Concession to sustain its wildlife. Guests are also able to visit the nearby village for authentic cultural interactions. A “pizza stop” and sleep-out option in the Star Bed at the wildlife-rich Madison Pan completes the experience.
