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 6 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 4×4 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 at the wildlife-rich Madison Pan completes the experience.
Children are welcome , however please note activities are not offered for children. The camp is also unfenced so children should be supervised at all times.
The camp offers a complimentary laundry service with a 24-hour turn around.
There is also a log hide in front of camp which overlooks the watering hole and offers fantastic opportunities to view and photograph animals as they come down to drink.
