Wilderness Safaris presents Linkwasha Camp in Zimbabwe

Surrounded by the lush African savannah and offering a private idyll where guests are kept company by nature’s wild roamers, Wilderness Safaris has announced the upcoming opening of new Linkwasha Camp in May 2015, beckoning to visitors to experience Zimbabwe’s abundant wildlife. 

Located in a game-rich private concession in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, the camp seeks to be the most luxurious accommodation on offer in the area.

With more than 18 years of experience in Hwange, the company has two private concessions in the most productive wildlife areas of the Park. The camp is perfectly located far away from public access areas but close to Ngamo, which offers fantastic summer game viewing to add to the excellent winter viewing within the concession. 

“We are making the commitment to invest in this destination based on our tremendous belief in Zimbabwe as a major player in Africa’s tourism industry,” said Keith Vincent, CEO, Wilderness Safaris. 

“We are confident that we will be able to offer an exceptional wildlife experience, with a level of luxury on par with what guests would associate with our Botswana camps,” he added. 

The camp has been designed to complement the company’s other two properties in the concession, Little Makalolo and Davison’s Camp, each catering to the needs and budgets of different markets. It will offer seven en-suite double or twin luxury tents and one family tent, accommodating a total of 18 guests. All rooms will include coffee- and tea-making facilities, small bar fridges, ceiling fans and outdoor showers. 

Activities will make the most of the exceptional year-round wildlife-viewing opportunities the area has to offer, with regular sightings of large herds of elephant and buffalo, prides of lion, and an abundance of plains game and birdlife. The concession’s savannah grassland habitat is the ideal environment for walking safaris, as well as interpretative game drives led by highly experienced Wilderness Safaris guides. 

Other activities on offer include visits to the Ngamo community, fresh-out-of-the-oven pizzas and sundowners in the bush, and a night spent under the stars at a nearby sleep-out deck. Alternatively, guests can simply sit back and relax on the deck while enjoying the incredible views of the Makalolo Pan located just in front of the camp.
