Linkwasha is an elegant and luxurious tented camp with a prime location on the largest private concession within the 3.5 million acre Hwange National Park. Situated at the edge of a vast pan, overlooking an active watering hole, the setting is characterized by enormous, open grass plains dotted with Ilala palms, teak forests, and acacia bushveld.
The abundant and diverse vegetation supports a great volume of herbivores, including large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as rarer species such as sable and roan antelope, and eland. As in any stable African eco-system, the wealth of herbivores attracts predators in large numbers, with lion, leopard, and hyena being highlights; rare and endangered cheetah and wild dog move freely through Hwange's vast protected space.
Activities focus on the Park's abundant wildlife, and guests can enjoy game-drives, night drives, walking safaris, and game-viewing from hides. Hwange is famous for its dense concentration of big game, and nowhere is this more evident than at the Park's many watering holes - including the one right in front of Linkwasha Camp! The importance of being on a private concession cannot be overstated, and guests at Linkwasha enjoy a sense of remoteness and exclusivity that is lacking in public parts of the Park.
Linkwasha is divided into two distinct and independent camps - one with seven tented rooms and one with three. The rooms in both are large and comfortable with canvas sides and thatched roofs. Each has en suite facilities as well as an outdoor shower. Raised wooden walkways link the rooms to a main lodge, which features a living room, bar, dining area, swimming pool, and an expansive balcony which overlooks the vast grassy plain.
Hwange National Park is one of Africa's great wildlife sanctuaries, and Linkwasha is the ideal base from which to explore the Park's abundant and diverse game. Combining a prime location with an elegant camp experience, Linkwasha offers exclusivity and outstanding game-viewing in one of southern Africa's top wilderness settings.
Linkwasha conducts all conservation-related maintenance on its concession in Hwange Park. This includes game monitoring, anti-poaching patrols, fire control, and upkeep of the 22 crucial bore-holes that are the lifeline of the Park's wildlife during the dry winter months.Recognizing that community empowerment offers a long-term solution to Africa's conservation challenges, the camp is also closely involved with communities surrounding Hwange, maintaining and supplying schools, supplementing teachers' salaries, providing scholarships to children in need, and offering a daily meal to all children at five schools around the Park, year-round.
