Little Makalolo lies in the heart of Hwange National Park. Hwange is legendary for its wonderful array of wildlife and massive herds of Elephant and Buffalo - especially in the dryer winter months. The camp is located in a great wildlife viewing part of the parks and it overlooks a vibrant waterhole, meaning game viewing is possible without even having to leave the camp.
What Africa Uncovered says...
Little Makalolo Camp is the finest safari camp in Hwange National Park. The camp is perfectly located within the park and with only six rooms the camp offers an exclusive safari experience in a prime wildlife viewing region.
The camp's six rooms 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.
The Makalolo region in Hwange has a large number of waterholes which attracts game in both quantity and variety, especially in the winter months.
Makalolo is one of the best areas for seeing impressive herds of buffalo and elephant and the region is also one of the better areas in Zimbabwe for sighting predators - Lion, Leopard, Wild Dog and cheetah are regularly sighted, along with African Wild Cat, Serval, Honey Badger, Civet and Hyena. The camp has hides overlooking a waterhole, which allow guests to enjoy close up game viewing.
There are excellent opportunities to view game from open 4x4 vehicles during the early morning and late afternoon, when game is most active. Walking safaris are also offered, and are accompanied by an armed professional guide.
