Located in Zimbabwe's flagship Hwange National Park, Little Makalolo is discreetly tucked away in a teak forest and overlooks a waterhole that sees a regular procession of animals coming down to drink. The focus here is firmly on wildlife and you'll be urged to try the different viewing hides - including the one overlooking the camp's waterhole - for great game and bird viewing as well as excellent photographic opportunities.

At Little Makalolo, your game viewing starts on your doorstep. Morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4s and walks with an armed guide are all part of the experience, and you can expect to see large antelope herds, closely followed by their predators, as well as classic large game species such as elephant, giraffe and buffalo. Birdlife is also abundant in the area with over 400 species recorded.


  • Set in animal-packed Hwange National Park
  • One of the few camps located within Hwange

Congregate around the campfire for a pre-dawn breakfast before your game drive and again for drinks - and perhaps stories this time - in the evening.

There is also a refreshing swimming pool in the camp to cool off in between safari activities. The dining room and lounge at Little Makalolo are all built under canvas and overlook the teeming waterhole, making game viewing both easy and comfortable.

Traveller Reviews

  • Little makalolo was wonderful. Our guide and his knowledge and expertise and personality meant we had a fantastic time. He worked so hard to find game for us and we had wonderful viewings of lions, owls, zebra and wildebeest and he found a group of elephants. It was a magical place. Wilderness air were also good.

  • We had the best of vacations, especially the kids. We saw the Big Five at Little Makalolo and the guide was the best ever.

"Little Makalolo is an eco-friendly camp and one of the few located within the boundaries of the Hwange National Park - it's all about privacy and seclusion."
