Opened in May 2015, Linkwasha is one of the most luxurious lodges in Hwange, one of Zimbabwe’s legendary National Parks.

The site was formerly occupied by a camp of the same name and looks out across a watering hole that attracts animals in winter, and near the Ngamo Plains which is famous for the density of game in summers (November to March), making this a perfect camp for all-year round game viewing.

There are seven double or twin tents and one for families of four, and the design throughout is a fresh and contemporary take on classic safari camps. The main hub of the camp has a dining room designed for both communal and private dining, a bar, a pool plus a lounge area with a canvas roof. There are also several deck areas on different levels allowing for excellent game-viewing potential without the need to even leave the camp. In winters the lounge/library area and fireplace are the place to be on chillier evenings.

The camp arrange daily game drives and walking safaris in what is generally regarded as one of the most game rich parts of the National Park. There is also a sleep out deck for the ultimate in romantic safari experiences. As part of the Wilderness Safaris group the camp is also concerned with sustainable tourism and there are regular presentations to talk about the conservation and community projects in place.

Why We Love It

Linkwasha is a private concession within Hwange National Park, meaning guests will never see another game vehicle except those from the camp.
