Wilderness Linkwasha Zimbabwe Guest Tent



Track The Wild

Experience exceptional game viewing at Linkwasha, on the edge of Hwange’s famed Ngamo Plains.


Wilderness Linkwasha

A contemporary safari lodge in an iconic Zimbabwe landscape.


Linkwasha is positioned on the edge of Hwange National Park’s productive Ngamo Plains, an area renowned for some of the best year-round game viewing on Earth. During summer, the plains teem with wildlife, and in winter they gather in abundance at the many Wilderness-supported waterholes throughout the park.

Shaded by leadwood trees, nine elegant tented suites, including one that accommodates families, offer views onto the camp’s waterhole and the busy plains beyond. Neutral tones and bold Ndebele patterns create a striking, authentically African atmosphere.

Delight in a brunch served al fresco, on the deck overlooking the waterhole, with a menu that celebrates local fruits and grains. Follow the quintessentially African smell of food being prepared over glowing coals, with an outdoor braai under the stars when the weather is warm. Share a sundowner with an elephant overlooking the waterhole, then retire to the library for a warm fireside dinner.

Wilderness Linkwasha Purpose CITW Educate

Impact across generations

On safari with Wilderness, your curiosity will be piqued. You may wonder why elephants flap their ears, or how migratory birds know where to go. The children from local communities wonder too, and we stimulate that curiosity by teaching them about conservation and sustainable tourism through our non-profit Children in the Wilderness’ initiatives.






Linkwasha experiences

Examine wildlife tracks up-close, and cock an ear for melodious bird calls on a bush walk with one of Linkwasha’s professional guides. Out on game drive, meet wildlife in its pristine habitat or sit quietly in the hide for intimate observations of Hwange’s elephants. Immerse yourself in this wilderness, with an evening at Linkwasha’s romantic Star Bed.


Explore camps in Hwange

Linkwasha is positioned in one of Hwange National Park’s most wildlife-rich regions. Here, a supremely diverse environment, coupled with year-round water provided at Wilderness-pumped waterholes, means the area heaves with elephant, and antelope and their predators. With access to the Linkwasha-Makololo Private Wilderness Area, our guests have over 34 000 ha of wild Zimbabwe to explore.
