Little Makalolo Camp lies in the heart of Hwange National Park, in one of its best game viewing areas, overlooking a vibrant waterhole. It offers privacy for guests who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness. Linking the tents to the main area are teak walkways. Here a false Mopane tree in the center of the camp shades a separate dining and living area, with an open fire area for those convivial evening fireside tales. The pool is a fantastic addition especially for those hot summer days. There is a log-pile hide overlooking the waterhole in front of camp which is home to literally a Noah’s Ark parade of animals as they come down to quench their thirst.
The camp’s six traditional-style tents – including a family unit – are spacious and en-suite, with indoor and outdoor showers. Solar power is used to heat water, ensuring a lighter environmental footprint at Little Makalolo Camp.
There are five standard tents which are made up of four twin bedded tents and one double bedded tent. There is also a family tent which comprises of two adjoining rooms which share a communal bathroom.

“The tents are simple, but very comfortable. All have en-suite facilities and overlook a very active pan. They are situated under trees and therefore remain cool during the middle of the day. The communal areas are designed to make the most of viewing the pan. Everything is cozy and informal. All the staff were very friendly and professional. The food was mainly self service and very tasty. It is obvious Bee, the manager runs a very tight ship and the camp appears to run with little fuss, but to a very high standard. If you like elephant, this is the place to visit – I have never seen so many elephant congregate in one place at one time. In the afternoons there were always a number of elephant drinking at the pan. There was a constant stream of visitors! The camp has an excellent hide that mean you get very close to the action at the pan. Other than the elephant (I still can’t believe how many), there is a good variety game to see. The area has a very large pride of lion, a good assortment of antelope (including Sable) and a superb variety off birds. I loved it!” –rjm50
“Because we are travelling every year to Africa since 25 years by now we can tell that this camp is just perfect – we liked it very much! It is small and therefore very familiar, intimate and well kept – the food was very tasty. Wildlife was just terrific and abundant – we had great and exiting experiences.
Eustice – our guide – was just fantastic, very passionate and well qualified. We loved the waterhole in front of the lodge very much, there was always something to observe and this was shortening the long afternoon siesta in a pleasant way. Thank you – Eustice, Bee and Themba, Eddie and all the other staff – we had a great time!” –Irène P
“Exceeded our expectations in EVERY aspect of our stay. If offered all the money in the world I could not say one negative thing about our days and nights here. The staff and camp operated like a well oiled machine during each and every minute spent there. I would not hesitate to go straight back there if ever given the opportunity. Bravo Little Mak, bravo!!” –Todd D
