Linkwasha Camp officially reopened its doors at the beginning of May 2015—be the first to see NEW pictures of this iconic camp!
The original Linkwasha Camp, built 17 years ago in the eastern corner of Hwange National Park, long held a reputation as one of Zimbabwe’s most successful wildlife sanctuaries. Closed temporarily for extensive renovations, Linkwasha Camp has become a symbol of renewed commitment to conservation in Zimbabwe as it reopened in May 2015 on its original site with significant investment and upgrades.
Located within the private Linkwasha and Makalolo concessions, together comprising 130,000 acres, Linkwasha has private access to and no overlap with public areas of Hwange National Park. This means that guests have access to both day and night wildlife drives, plus guided walks in the area. This private section of the park was chosen for the camp nearly two decades ago because of its prime location for wildlife viewing. With access to the Ngamo Plains and varied habitats including savanna, grasslands, teak woodlands, vleis and abundant water, this area has the highest recorded densities of wildlife in the 3.6 million-acre national park.
Linkwasha is known for some of the largest herds of elephant and buffalo in Africa, and there are a number of rare antelope found here, too, including roan, sable and eland. Safari favorites like giraffe, hippo and zebra are easily spotted. Lion are attracted to abundant prey while cheetah love the open landscapes, and both are commonly on view along with the occasional leopard, honey badger, bat-eared fox and side-striped jackal.
The new camp features nine spacious private tents including a family tent, all with en suite facilities. The camp is comfortable during any season: open and airy in summer with screens on the tents allowing a cooling breeze, and for cold winter nights, glass doors can enclose all spaces and fireplaces keep guests warm and cozy during dinner and afterward.
