Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Little Makalolo overlooks a vibrant waterhole in the heart of Hwange National Park. The camp's six luxurious rooms have en suite facilities with both indoor and outdoor showers. Solar power provides electricity, to ensure a lighter environmental footprint. The living areas include a dining room, lounge, plunge pool and an open fire area for convivial evening storytelling. There is a log pile 'tree house' hide overlooking the waterhole where guests can enjoy wildlife viewing during the siesta hours.
Activities center on game drives in open 4x4 Land Rovers and guided nature walks throughout the Makalolo concession. The area's large number of waterholes attracts game in both quantity and variety, especially in the winter months when Hwange is home to a Noah's Ark parade of animals as they come down to quench their thirst. Makalolo is one of the best areas for seeing impressive herds of buffalo and elephant as well as apex predators such as lion, leopard, wild dog and cheetah. Other general game is also abundant in the park. Bird life in the area is also prolific (more than 400 species have been identified), with species that frequent teak woodlands as well as those more typical of the drier Kalahari.
