Makalolo Plains, Hwange, Zimbabwe

Hwange is vast, some one and a half million hectares of blond grassy plains punctuated with teak forests and thorny scrub. Beneath it's wide and endless skies variety exists in plenty.

Tucked away in the treeline on the edge of Hwange's Samavundhla Pan, Makalolo Plains overlooks a waterhole where game drinks daily. This is perhaps one of Hwange's finest luxury safari camps, where an unbeatable wildlife experience is guaranteed.

Makalolo Plains, a classic tented safari camp, is set in the tree line on the edge of the Samavundhla Pan in Hwange National Park.
