I stayed at Little Makalolo with a friend of mine for 2 nights in March 2012. From the moment we landed on the airstrip, we were in love. The entire staff really made us feel at home and our guide Buli was amazingly knowledgable. The tent was really nice but not so fancy that it didn't feel like an authentic safari experience. Unlike some other camps we stayed at, Little Makalolo tents are actually on the ground, so you really feel like you're in the wilderness. Falling asleep to the sounds of elephants fighting it out at the watering hole (right in your backyard) was unforgettable. The food was awesome. Also, the size of the concession is large, so there's plenty of ground to cover and a lot of variety in terms of animals and scenery. We saw all of the big 5 except for rhino of course. But our amazing guide Buli did spot some rhino tracks! I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Charming and intimate, Little Makalolo's location in the south-east of Hwange lends it a sense of seclusion and remoteness. Nestled into the treeline, the camp overlooks a productive waterhole that draws large numbers of wildlife, observed up close from the log-pile hide. Elephant, buffalo, giraffe and zebra are regular visitors, while special sightings include sable, roan and eland. The area is best explored on game drives and guided walks, with special extras like an unexpected pizza or a night spent under the stars on the Madison Pan star-bed platform. • 6 tents (1 family) • game drives • nature walks • Madison Pan star-bed • log-pile hide • village visits ... more less
