Where is Linkwasha Camp: Linkwasha is situated in a private concession in Hwange National Park. This remote corner of Hwange is wild and teeming with action as wildlife visits the waterhole in front of camp. The Ngamo Plains is a special place and large herds of plains game visits during the summer months, with predators close behind. This incredible camp allows you to get the full authentic African safari experience. Being on a private concession there is an element of exclusivity. There is so many activities on offer here adding to the value of this special camp. Hwange has one of the largest elephant populations in Africa as well as large numbers of mammal and bird species. Open vlei’s, a variety of mixed woodland and Kalahari sands support all types of interesting and unique creatures. We love Linkwasha!
Accommodation: There are elements of local Ndebele theme throughout camp and the camps main area and nine luxurious tents overlook a scenic plain. One of the luxury tents is a family tent so take the kids along to Linkwasha for an incredible experience. The main area includes various decks and areas to relax including a library, shaded salas and a fireplaces for the frosty winter mornings and evenings. We highly recommend spending a night in the nearby Star Bed to fully appreciate the starry skies and the sounds of nocturnal Africa.
Activities: Guided walks, game drives, night drives, log-pile hide, Star Bed, cultural activities
Cultural Visits and More: Wilderness Safaris non-profit partner the Children in the Wilderness is a hugely important program. They are heavily involved in working with the surrounding schools and communities, ensuring they benefit from conservation and sustainable ecotourism. Guests staying at Linkwasha can enjoy a local village visit which often includes a guided tour of the local community projects, the local school and meeting the local headman.
