Little Makalolo

Little Makalolo is a classic camp deep in Hwange

Voyage2Africa brings you Little Makalolo, a signature Zimbabwe camp created cosily in a teak forest to reflect a true safari experience in Hwange National Park and offering exclusive game viewing in its own private concession. 

Little Makalolo is a classic camp deep in the Hwange wilds and comprises just 6 super rustic yet comfy tented chalets overlooking an active waterhole. Raised on wooden boardwalks the chalets are all interlinked and join the main areas too, and each one is framed with timber on strong timber decks. They are light and airy and have roll down canvas doors and windows if it gets cool or too hot. 

Tasteful safari style and ethnic décor remind guests that they are indeed in the heart of Africa and everything is good quality – step onto your private patio and see into the wilderness for miles. Indoor and outdoor showers, copper basins and fans complete the pretty picture. The camp is environmentally conscious and uses solar power and batteries for electricity and hot water. There is no need for a noisy generator and the camp has decreased its eco footprint a lot to reduce impacts on nature and the air.

The main area was recently renovated, refurbished and redesigned to add value to all guests who love the bushveld – enjoy the seating areas in the lounges, the small library featuring magazines, books and board games, and complimentary teas and coffees it the airy dining area.

Gather around the evening fire pit to enjoy chatting about the animals and the Hwange National Park, the rangers sharing their knowledge about all biodiversity and their love for Zimbabwe. There is luckily a small plunge pool for sheer enjoyment during the day, and deck chairs on the beautiful sun deck.
Fascinating bush walks take guests into the thick wilderness areas to find game and other fantastic creatures and plants. Tracking animals is half the fun and visitors come back elated and excited to have seen all the surprises they come across.

As part of your commitment to sustainable tourism and ecotourism initiatives in Zimbabwe and Hwange, take a drive to the small town of Ngamo to see the schools and what the camp is doing to assist the people. Voyage2Africa will get you to Little Makalolo on an irresistible package deal to enjoy bush walks, game drives and more while you relax in style in this intimate 6-tent camp. 



This is one of the Wilderness Safaris jewels, a camp that reflects the nostalgia of an era of safari when camps were set up with elegance and luxury, every service available to the privileged bush enthusiasts at the turn of the century.  This is Little Makalolo, an intimate camp deep in the bushveld of the famous Hwange National Park, a Zimbabwean gem where wildlife is key to the tourist’s enjoyment. Find meaning in your life when you visit this premium wildlife concession that puts conservation first.

Visitors to Africa can fly from Vic Falls to Hwange in under two hours and the joy remains theirs when they combine adventure with safari, fun with chill time. We recommend a tour to Zimbabwe that has Hwange as the central pivot and adds on adventures into the great parks of Zim. Drive from Vic falls by road and see the sights along the way too. 

Let’s look at Little Makalolo in more detail – picture a cosy camp beside an active waterhole where animals visit to drink and socialise. It’s a gold mine in the dry months, attracting herds of elephants, zebra, buffalo and antelope. Lions hide in the vegetation and leopards of course, take their chances too.   

Check into your tented suite with great delight and find indoor and outdoor showers, gorgeous beds with quality linens and fantastic decks from which to absorb the wilderness around you. Stroll on down to the main deck for a swim in the dazzling swimming pool, a welcoming plunge in the midday heat! Wander the hand made teak walkways between tents and main areas, marvelling at the trees, the birds and the absolute serenity of the Zimbabwean bushveld. 

Little Makalolo offers some of the best game viewing in Zimbabwe so look out for the Big 5 and all the tiny things that matter too, including some indigenous trees and shrubs that will take your breath away. Don’t forget that camera, hat and tons of humour for a day in Africa is full of wonderful surprises. Get awesome value for your money when you choose this Hwange tented camp for your Africa vacation and chat to Voyage2Africa to design your ultimate tour to neighbouring countries such as Zambia and Botswana too.
