Little Makalolo is located in a private concession area of Hwange National Park. The camp has six classic tents with en suite bathrooms, including a flush toilet, and shower with hot and cold running water - as well as an outdoor shower under the stars. The main living area is under canvas and houses the dining room, lounge and pub, and a small plunge pool. The camp overlooks a small waterhole and guests can enjoy game viewing during the "siesta" hours in a wood-pile hide. Day and night game drives and walks are offered. Due to the private game concession, few other vehicles will ever been seen.
Lunch on Livingstone Island was quite fun. Hwange is a wonderful park, with huge herds of elephants, but we especially enjoyed watching a lioness and her cubs, as she sought to keep them safe and in line. We managed to see all of the big five in Hwange alone, including a herd of at least 800 buffalo and a leopard just outside our camp. Mana Pools was an exciting experience, not to be missed: walking up on pride of lions, being 'bubbled' by a hippo while canoeing on the Zambezi River, and seeing wild dogs, are experiences that will not be forgotten. Last but not least, seeing both white and black rhino at Malilangwe, with one black rhino deciding to take an interest in us instead of scurrying away, was too good to be true.
All of the camps were excellent in their own way. Our thanks to everyone at Little Makalolo, Vundu and Pamashana, for making our stays so wonderful. Read More

It is hard to know where to start to express how amazing my safari to Zimbabwe was for me and my son, Alex. Little Makalolo was our first camp and Charles, our guide, was fa bulous. I was impressed by how attentive the camp staff were to our needs. I loved the sundowners every night and the glass of sherry waiting for us when we returned to camp after our afternoon safari and sundowner.
Our next camp was Vundu Camp in Mana Pools. Our guide was Mark Van Zuydam. He was excellent; a wealth of knowledge and so personable. The camp staff, including Natalie and Nadine, were so nice. Alex and I felt as though we had been friends with them forever . Vundu was a more rustic camp experience, which I loved, and was situated next to the banks of the Zambezi River. What a beautiful sight to behold from the comfort of our tent.Read More
