Little Makalolo overlooks a vibrant waterhole in one of the best game-viewing areas of the Hwange National Park.

The camp's six rooms have en-suite facilities, with both indoor and outdoor showers. Solar power provides the camp electricity, ensuring a favourable environmental footprint. The living areas include a dining room, lounge, plunge pool and an open fire area for the swapping of game-viewing fireside tales. Activities on offer include 4x4 Land Rover game drives and guided nature walks throughout the Makalolo concession. The area's large number of waterholes attracts large and varied quantities of game, especially during the winter months from June to October when Hwange hosts huge numbers of animals as they arrive to quench their thirst.

Twitchers should note the 400 plus species of birds visible in the teak woodlands of the National Park, and also including visitors from the Kalahari desert. There is also a log pile hide overlooking the waterhole in front of camp where guests can enjoy wildlife viewing during the siesta hours, and most relaxing of all, guests can lean on the edge of the pool to see game wandering by.
