Linkwasha Camp

Hwange National Park

Rating: Mid-range    

Linkwasha Camp overview

Limkwasha Camp is located by a wide plain and water pan, which attracts wildlfe year round. The split level communal decks are perfectly positioned for watching animals as you rest between safaris, There are 9 tents arranged in two wings to either side of the main area. All are built on wooden decks and have panoramic views. Inside there's a roomy bedroom and sitting area, cooled by fans, with mesh windows that can be covered by canvas blinds for privacy at night, and an en-suite bathroom with 2 hand basins, a shower and bath, and a separate toilet. Families are accommodated in the larger 2-bedroom tent.

Game drives in the morning and afternoon let you explore Hwange National Park and seek out its abundant game and predators. You also have the option to take a night drive to see and hear the bush after dark, and to join a guide on a walking safari which is the best way to get close to nature. Anyone who wants to get a real feel for life in the bush should take the opportunity to spend at night at the star bed on Scott's Pan, a memorable sleep-out.

The hottest part of the day is spent in camp, where you can relax in the lounge and enjoy meals on the cool of the dining tent or on the deck. There's a swimming pool for refreshing exercise, and a firepit where sundowners are served.
