Hung in the south-eastern corner of the Hwange National Park, on an exclusive piece of pristine land, Linkwasha Camp lies at the entrance of the Ngamo Plains. These plains are renowned as the passageway for animals during the summer months. The winter months sees the game moving to the nearby pan, where thirsty animals are always in sight.
Lodge and Accommodation
Designed to remain open and inviting, Linkwasha’s modern interiors are awash with traditional touches and African wisps of chich décor. The camp’s main areas are raised on a multi-tier deck, along with pool, lounge and library – the latter ideals for winter months.
The 8 sumptuous suites and single family tent overlook the Ngamo Plains, with views stretching deep into the horizon. Each tent holds en-suite facilities to make your experience that much more comfortable. The Star Bed is also available, should you wish to drift to sleep under the bright canopy of the Milky Way.
Activities and Wildlife
With over a hundred varieties of mammal roaming the fields and plains of Ngamo, you’re bound to see everything you’ve dreamed of on a visit to Linkwasha. In winter, watch the elephants play in the waterhole or the plethora of buck, zebra and wildebeest filling up the plains in summer. Needless to say, year round, the predators are ever near these masses of herbivores, ready to turn half a chance into a meal.
The game drives cross the 1.4 million hectares of the Hwange National Park, making it possible to see every animal in a variety of different ecological systems. Walking safaris take you even closer to the land, where you’ll see the finer aspects of each biome interplay in harmony with the others. Evening drives and local village tours are yet more activities to immerse yourself into.
