7 December 2020ZIMBABWE – As Zimbabwe’s borders open up to international travellers, Wilderness Safaris is delighted to welcome guests to its intimate Linkwasha Camp from 15 December 2020. Set in the wildlife-rich Hwange National Park, Linkwasha is world-renowned for its exclusive setting within Wilderness Safaris’ private concession in the enormously productive south-eastern corner of Hwange..“Zimbabwe is one of the most ‘user-friendly’ countries when it comes to COVID-19, and our experienced teams are delighted to showcase Hwange’s magic to our guests once again, and to ensure that they experience a truly life-changing journey – from the minute they arrive in Zimbabwe until they return safely home”, notes Dean Morton, Wilderness Safaris Zambezi Operations Manager.“Hwange’s wide open spaces and exciting wildlife encounters, combined with the intimate nature of our camps, makes Linkwasha an ideal option for guests looking to reconnect with nature, themselves and their loved ones during this time; in an extremely safe and pristine environment, far from the madding crowd”, he adds..In line with the company’s stringent health and cleanliness standards, aligned to the World Health Organisation’s protocols, Wilderness Safaris will ensure that guests are taken care of every step of the way. Linkwasha only accommodates a small number of guests so there is ample space for comfortable social distancing. Activities include game drives and nature walks out in the open, also offering the ideal opportunity to unwind in this extraordinary wilderness setting.“It is exciting to be resuming operations, not only for our staff to host guests again, but also for our neighbouring communities, who largely rely on the tourism industry. In the Hwange region, we work closely with our non-profit partner, Children in the Wilderness (CITW), to positively impact the numerous villages and schools on the outskirts of the Park. We are so grateful for the support from our Chairman’s Foundation, guests and partners who have helped us to distribute over 1 000 food hampers to hundreds of vulnerable families, helping meet their basic food and hygiene needs during this time. We have also continued our support of the Scorpion Anti-Poaching Unit, and look forward to hosting guests once again so that we can continue to drive conservation tourism in the region”..For more information or to enquire about a reservation, please visit www.wilderness-safaris.com.For up-to-date information and FAQs about Wilderness Safaris’ COVID protocols and policies in place, as well as travel updates, click here.To watch a short video featuring our recent COVID-relief efforts in Zimbabwe, click here, and here to watch a short video about the Scorpion Anti-Poaching Unit.ENDS.
