Davison's Camp lies deep in Hwange National Park, in the south eastern Linkwasha Concession. It is a classic African tented camp, with the units located in a grove of false mopane trees, overlooking a waterhole and open plain.
Named after the founder of Hwange National Park and its first warden, Ted Davison, this camp has 8 tents and a family tent. Both the tents and the separate main area, comprising a lounge, dining room, and open campfire area and pool, look out over the waterhole.
Activities at Davison's Camp include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, or guided walks in the early mornings, while during the siesta hours, you can from your tent veranda or the main area view wildlife coming down to the waterhole to drink.
Wildlife frequently encountered here includes lion, large herds of elephant, buffalo, leopard, white rhino, spotted hyena, southern giraffe, sable, blue wildebeest, impala, common waterbuck and reedbuck.
There are a number of large, open plains areas which make for excellent game viewing. In summer, wildebeest, zebra and eland are found in abundance here, while in winter the waterholes are magnets around which elephant in enormous numbers congregate to drink.
Bird life in the area is prolific and varied, with over 400 species frequenting the teak woodlands as well as the drier Kalahari.
