Linkwasha Camp (Hwange Game Reserve) Zimbabwe
Linkwasha is situated in a private area in south-east Hwange National Park. The area includes many diverse habitats including teak forests, palm islands, Kalahari savannah and acacia woodlands.
The animal populations are equally diverse and the area attracts over 400 species of birds. The nearby waterholes provide a refreshing oasis for much of the wildlife.
The camp is set in a most beautiful location in the middle of a broad plain overlooking the camp's waterhole. Each guest has wonderful, unrestricted views from their rooms across the plains.
Linkwasha is a 14-bedded camp and Little Linkwasha is a 6-bedded camp. The rooms at both camps are large, comfortable and have tented walls under thatch with en suite facilities, including a shower, basin and flush toilet, and an outside shower "under the stars".
The dining room, pub and lounge area is under thatch and there is a plunge pool. A viewing platform affords great views across the plains. Raised board walks connect the main dining area with the rooms.
Activities / Wildlife
The area is known during our winter months for its big game, in particular large concentrations of Elephant and Buffalo. Lion, Leopard, Cheetah and Hyena are regulars, and their prey includes all the plains game. Roan and Sable are seen in the woodlands. Birdlife is abundant and diverse. During the summer, after the first rains, we see a large influx of the plains game ~ Eland, Zebra, Giraffe and Wildebeest arrive in large concentrations to feed off the new grasses and shrubs on the plains, closely followed by their predators.
Game drives in 4x4 Land Rovers and walks with an armed guide form part of the experience at Linkwasha. Night drives allow guests to experience the excitement of viewing nocturnal animals in action. Viewing game near a waterhole at sunset, while sipping "sundowners" is not to be forgotten. There are a number of hides in the area for close up game viewing.
