In Southern Africa, Linkwasha is the new must-visit stop for animal lovers.

The comeback of Zimbabwe as a safari destination is in full swing. Part of the proof: Linkwasha, the newest luxury camp from Wilderness Safaris. Inside game-packed Hwange National Park, the country’s largest reserve, the nine-tent camp overlooks an active watering hole. Hwange boasts one of the biggest elephant populations in southern Africa, and Linkwasha’s private concession means guests have the best wildlife to themselves. In addition to joining game drives and bush walks with some of Africa’s top guides, travelers can visit a nearby Ndebele village and discuss local issues with a headman before returning to camp for a sundowner. Rates, including meals, from $550 per person; Hwange National Park;27-11/807-1800; wilderness-safaris.com.
