About This Accommodation

Little Makololo is a classic safari camp located in central Hwange National Park that is great for families and couples alike. The camp consists of only 6 traditional style safari tents (including a family unit) with en-suite bathrooms and indoor and outdoor showers. The décor is simple yet polished. Teak walkways connect the tents to the main lounge and dining areas and the fire pit where guests gather for sundowners and to recap their days on safari.

Activities at Little Makololo include game drives in Hwange, night drives, walking safaris, and visits to the nearby Ngamo school. If you prefer to relax at the camp, there’s a lovely pool to cool off in during the heat of the day and a log pile hide that overlooks the camp’s active waterhole where resident elephant will come to drink.

Videos from Little Makalolo

  • An insider-favourite for decades, Little Makalolo is the original intimate bush camp in Hwange with a long serving staff that is family to themselves and our guests. With only six tents and recently totally refurbished with a raised pool and breakfast deck overlooking the camp waterhole, it offers sublime privacy for guests who enjoy authenticity and a sense of remoteness. The legendary log-pile hide retains pride of place and is a one of a kind dry-season game viewing experience, with elephant herds drinking and splashing just metres away.
  • Zimbabwe's productive, game-strewn plains and majestic rivers are quite simply exceptional. From the savannah and woodland of Hwange National Park to the Zambezi River and floodplain of Mana Pool National Park, the camps operated by Wilderness Safaris offer the best opportunities for the safari of a lifetime.
