Home Accommodations Makalolo Plains Camp

Makalolo Plains Camp

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Makalolo Plains is one of the few camps situated within the vast Hwange National Park. The Makalolo area is ecologically diverse, including vast, open palm-fringed plains, grasslands, acacia woodlands and mopane forests. This ensures a varied food supply that feeds a great array of animals including elephant, buffalo, sable, giraffe, lion, leopard, wild dog, cheetah and more. Bird life in the area is prolific, with more than 400 species, including those that frequent teak woodlands as well as those more typical of the drier Kalahari.

The camp is built on raised teak decks and boardwalks, providing panoramic views over the Somavundla Pan with its excellent concentrations of wildlife. Accommodations consist of ten large, comfortable tented rooms with en-suite facilities, as well as an outdoor shower to enjoy showering under the stars. The main area has a lounge, pub, plunge pool and dining area where delicious meals are served.

There are a number of shallow pans spread throughout the park around which wildlife congregates, making for excellent and reliable game viewing. While the emphasis is on game drives, night drives and guided walks, guests may also take advantage of well-situated hides and raised viewing platforms during the lazy midday hours, from which they can survey wildlife coming to the waterholes to drink.
