Linkwasha – Hwange National Park
Linkwasha is a luxurious camp that lies in a private concession in the enormously productive south-eastern corner of Hwange National Park. Situated on the edge of the famed Ngamo Plains, which offer fantastic summer game viewing, the camp looks over a magnificent plain and a pan that is a magnet for game year-round, especially in the dry winter months.
The fresh, open and airy design of Linkwasha Camp is complemented by an eclectic mix of contemporary interiors. Eight sumptuous en-suite tents and one family unit offer incredible views, while the main area – including multi-level decks, a pool area and a winter lounge complete with library – overlooks the prolific waterhole.
Things to do at Linkwasha
Game drives in open 4x4 vehicles
With access to two of the best private concessions in Hwange, Linkwasha game drives are particularly exciting, taking in herds as well as the carnivores that call the area home.
Night drives can yield many species less-frequently-seen species, such as lesser bushbaby, pangolin, caracal, porcupine, springhare and honey badger.
There is something remarkable about being so very close to nature… one couldn’t get much closer than this!
