Makalolo Plains is a premier tented camp in the remote Makalolo Concession in the southern sector of Hwange National Park. It is without a doubt one of the best camps within the reserve, renowned for its service and wildlife. The entire camp is raised on wooden decks thus ensuring spectacular views of the park's contrasting landscapes and the parade of wildlife that passes through them. It overlooks the Somavundla Pan which is frequently visited by plains game and predators, as well as huge herds of elephant and buffalo. The main lodge has a lounge with a roaring fireplace keeping you warm on chilly winter evenings and a well-stocked pub. Wine and dine inside at the elegant sitting area or at the outdoor boma. And there is a plunge pool to wallow in during the heat of day or you could catch a tan on the deckchairs.
Accommodation consists of 10 tented suites, each raised on a wooden deck and connected to the main lodge by winding walkways. Each tent has been erected within a wooden house, with a private verandah and double doors opening out into the pristine wilderness. Facilities include a well-appointed en-suite bathroom, with an indoor and outdoor shower and all the creature comforts one would expect of such an establishment. We like it a lot.
