Linkwasha Camp Information
- Location & Getting There:
Linkwasha Camp sits on the south-east side of Hwange National Park, close the Ngama Plains. The camp is an 11-hour 30-minute international flight from OR Tambo International Airport, connecting to Victoria Falls. It is a short flight to Linkwasha Airstrip and then approximately a 45-60 minute drive to camp.
Linkwasha Camp sleeps up to 22 guests in seven twin/double tents and two 2-bedroom family tents, each impeccably decorated in a blend of modern and traditional African style. Wide-plank wood flooring is warmed by the sun’s rays. Canvas ceilings soar above, softening the space, while romantic mosquito-netting floats in the breeze around large sumptuously appointed beds. Whether in bed or sitting comfortably in the lounge, you’ll enjoy views across the plains from floor-to-ceiling windows that open fully into the warm night air.
Outdoor viewing decks
Sitting on a private concession, Linkwasha Camp gives guests the opportunity to enjoy a more bespoke safari experience than if you were situated within the national park. Without the restrictions and regulations of the park, guests are free to enjoy both day and night game drives as well as exceptional walking safaris with some of the best Zimbabwean guides in Africa, guides who will blow you away with their knowledge and passion for their work.
Wildlife is the focus, but the history of Hwange National Park is well worth a look. Wilderness Safaris, the Linkwasha Camp operator, sponsors a number of researchers in the area and guests at the camp have the opportunity to speak with them about the work they’re doing. Take some time to visit one of the community programs supported by the camp and see first-hand the positive impact tourism is having, a positive impact supported by each and every guest at Linkwasha Camp.
The Linkwahsa operator, Wilderness Safaris, is one of the leading safari operators caring for families. Guides and staff will tailor the experience to make an unforgettable safari for guests of all ages, but please keep in mind that Linkwasha does not accept children below the age of 6.
