Little Makalolo, commonly referred to as 'Little Mak', is an exclusive camp offering comfortable and luxurious accommodation and facilities in a fantastic safari location. The camp is managed by the highly acclaimed Wilderness Safaris and the quality of guiding, service and accommodation at Little Makalolo are of the high standard associated with Wilderness.

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe's largest national park covering 14,500 square kilometres running along the country's eastern border with Botswana. Hwange is predominantly Kalahari sandveld interspersed with saltpans, grassland, mopane and teak woodland and acacia scrub. The environment supports a huge species diversity: over 100 species of mammal and 400 species of birds have been recorded in the area.

Hwange was proclaimed a protected area over 75 years ago and has since become a haven for great herds of buffalo and elephant. These large herds are supported through a network of pumps, tirelessly maintained and serviced through charitable donations, which bring borehole water to the surface to fill waterholes throughout the park.

Little Makalolo is set on one such waterhole providing an opportunity for guests of the camp to enjoy dramatic and diverse game viewing from the camp itself, and up close from the log-pile hide by the water.

The six rooms are all en-suite, with both indoor and outdoor showers. The main living area of camp has a spacious indoor and outdoor dining area, lounge, pool and an open camp fire area, perfect for the colder nights of winter.

The camp is committed to ensuring a light environmental footprint: solar power provides the all electricity and hot water used in camp.
