Zimbabwe Exploration: Hwange Walking Safari
Experience authentic Africa with a walking safari through Zimbabwe’s private Linkwasha Concession, located in the southeastern corner of the famed Hwange National Park. In recent years, Hwange has become known for its large herds of plains game, thriving big cat population, and many elephants—all of which are drawn to the area’s water holes. By getting your feet on the ground and using vehicles to roam farther afield, you’ll have a chance to see why Hwange has become one of Zimbabwe’s crown jewels.
- Enjoy exclusive access to the private Linkwasha Concession, where a diverse habitat welcomes many species of birds and mammals.
- Immerse yourself in the vast landscapes of Hwange on an exciting walking safari, while allowing vehicles to help you explore farther afield.
- Sleep in a dome tent under the dazzling stars of Zimbabwe.
