The private concession of Makalolo (and Linkwasha) in south-eastern Hwange National Park, are built upon a solid foundation of purpose, as they support local community in order to protect the wildlife and help the people in surrounding villages, through active partnerships with the Zimbabwe Parks, Wildlife Management Authority (ZPWMA) and other conservation entities.

Little Makalolo lies in the heart of one of the best game viewing areas in Hwange National Park and is a mere 45-minute flight from Victoria Falls in a light aircraft.

Located beside a vibrant waterhole in the private area of the national park, Little Makalolo allows guest a window view of some of the finest wildlife Africa has to offer. The solar-driven pumps replenish the waterhole daily, attracting masses of Africa's behemoths for your viewing pleasure from the log-pile hide.

Little Makalolo offers guests ultimate privacy, especially for those who enjoy small camps and a sense of remoteness. The camp's six traditional-style tents – including a family unit – are spacious with indoor and outdoor showers. Solar power is used for tent lights and to heat water, ensuring a lighter environmental footprint, yet no compromise in comfort.

Teak walkways link the tents to the main area, where a false mopane tree shades a separate dining and living area with an open fire deck for those convivial evening fireside tales under the stars. A raised pool deck, which also shelters the bar and breakfast ‘room’, offers evocative views of the much-frequented waterhole in front of camp.

At Little Makalolo expert safari guides await your journey to share their wealth of wildlife knowledge and cultural tales. Be sure to request a walking safari, where guides can drill down into the detail otherwise not commonly shared on the everyday vehicle-based safari.

Night drives are available, and the perfect ending to your nocturnal wildlife extravagancy is to sleep out in the Starbed / sleep out hide under a bright African sky (request in advance).
