LINKWASHA CAMP & LITTLE LINKWASHA
- HWANGE NATIONAL PARK, 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
room has wonderful, unrestricted views across the plains. The two camps
are operated as separate camps by Wilderness Safaris.

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
are 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.
Game drives in 4x4 Land Rovers
and walks with an armed guide form part of the experience at Linkwasha.
Viewing game close up at a waterhole from one of the area's many hides
is an experience not to be forgotten.
The area is known during the 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 antelopes are seen in the woodlands.
Birdlife is abundant and diverse. During the summer, after the first rains,
you will 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.
