Linkwasha, a Wilderness Safaris Camp in Zimbabwe
Situated between the mighty Zambizi and the more sedate Limpopo rivers, Zimbabwe is a country of variety. Majestic mountains, abundant forests and rushing rivers offer travellers a range of adventures. Hwange National Park is the country’s largest game reserve and it’s here you will find Linkwasha, a luxurious camp in Hwange. Situated close to the Ngamo Plains where you can enjoy fabulous game viewing during the summer which complements the winter viewing from the camp itself.
Experience the Wildlife-rich Hwange Range
There are over a hundred mammal species in the area and from Linkwasha you can enjoy the easy access to the best wildlife locations. Linkwasha offers more than the larger mammals for your viewing and believe the smaller and more diverse birds, mammals and reptiles can provide you with even more enjoyment and entertainment. The birds of the Hwange Range are many and varied, all year round with marked increases in the summer months when numbers are swelled by migratory species.
The ethos of the Linkwasha Camp is all about providing a luxurious, full service safari experience. Accommodation is by way of eight en-suite luxury tents and one family tent looking towards the waterhole where you can watch the wildlife to your heart’s content. The main area consists of a pool area, multi-level decks and a library housed in the winter lounge and also overlooks the waterhole.
A brochure is provided on arrival with tips for your wildlife viewing. It has also got a checklist where you can keep a record of all the animals you encounter on your trip. Viewing of lion, herds of elephant, buffalo, leopard, giraffe and many others are available year-round thanks to the diverse landscapes.
Things to Do
Exciting game drives are a favourite attraction with the walking safaris popular among those looking for a more energetic experience. The evening drives are just as productive for viewing of nocturnal creatures such as lion, spotted hyena, Selous Mongoose and many others.
A visit to an authentic village accompanied by one of the villagers or a wilderness guide is an enjoyable, respectful experience for all concerned.
The Guides of Linkwasha are passionate about what they do and are dedicated to ensuring your safari is full of the experiences you expect. The viewing groups consist of 7 or fewer in order to ensure each guest has a window seat for viewing and each trip can be tailor-made to suit your requirements. The tours take place mostly in private areas exclusive to Wildlife Safaris’ guests.
As a concessionaire, Linkwasha has taken responsibility for a number of conservation projects, ranging from the Hwange Anti-Poaching Project to the Elephant Movement Study and Village Schools Rehabilitation Project. They are also involved in a School Nutrition Programme and Pack for a Purpose. This latter programme invites visitors to bring a contribution for community based projects.
