Little Makalolo Camp

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe


Stay at Little Makalolo Camp

Intimate and exclusive, Little Makalolo is situated in the remote south-east of Hwange, looking out at a waterhole to which animals are drawn in their numbers in the dry season. A false mopane tree in the centre of the camp shades a dining and living area, with a plunge pool in which to cool off, and an open area for convivial evening fireside tales. During siesta hours, you can enjoy outstanding wildlife viewing at the log pile hide that overlooks the waterhole in front of camp.

There are six canvas tented rooms with wooden doors, joined with sandy walkways. Each tent comprises en-suite facilities, outside shower and a veranda with two chairs and a view.

There is no air-conditioning however there are pedestal fans provided in the rooms. During the winter hot water bottles and extra blankets are provided. Room comes equipped with shampoo, body shower gel, body lotion, guest soap, sunscreen, room spray, shower cap, accessory kit, insect repellents spray/cream, mosquito oil, re-chargeable torch, umbrella and robes.

In winter, small wood heaters are used in the main areas and knee blankets are provided during dinner.

Jen & George

We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
