Little Makalolo is the "sister" camp to Makalolo Plains. It is located about 20 minutes' drive away from Makalolo Plains and is completely independently run, with its own staff, management and guides.
Little Makalolo is located about 20 minutes drive from Makalolo Camp. It is built among teak trees looking towards a waterhole and pan which is about 100m away from camp.
The camp is built on the ground, unlike Makalolo Plains, which is raised up on decking. There is a hide in front of the camp which gives great views onto the waterhole.
Summer sees the large antelope herds migrate onto the open grasslands in the area, closely followed by their predators. Elephants, Buffalo, Sable, Roan, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Impala and sometimes even Gemsbok can be seen here.
The area is one of the best for predators ~ Lion, Leopard, Wild Dog and Cheetah are regularly sighted, along with the smaller African Wild Cat, Serval, Honey Badger, Civet and Hyena. The area has a number of waterholes which attract game in large concentrations, especially during the winter months.
Guests can sit at a waterhole and watch the passing parade of animals as they come to quench their thirst. For the bird watcher, Makalolo offers a wonderful range of birding, from Miombo species right through to the Kalahari species.
The main activities are the game drives in open 4x4 Land Rovers. Walks with an experienced and armed guide are a highlight for those who want to experience Africa at close quarters. Accommodation
