The eiptomy of wild luxury, Linkwasha offers sumptuous comfort in the heart of the Zimbabwean wilderness.
Linkwasha is situated on the edge of the Ngamo Plains in a private concession in the enormously productive south-eastern corner of Hwange National Park. Incredible views can be enjoyed from the multi-level decks, pool area and winter lounge/library that form the main part of this spacious and welcoming camp. Guest accommodation comprises eight contemporary en-suite tents and one family unit.
Linkwasha’s prolific waterhole attracts a wealth of wildlife, esepcially in the dry winter months, whilst beyond the camp the surrounding plains, pans and veld offer diverse landscapes that draw wildlife year round. Regular sightings in the area include lion, large herds of elephant, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, spotted hyena, giraffe, sable, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck. Hwange also boasts over 400 species of bird.
