Hwange National Park


Davison's Camp Location Map

Davison's Camp is located in the private Linkwasha Concession – one of the most prolific wildlife areas in Hwange National Park.

Named after the founder of the Park and its first warden, Ted Davison, the camp overlooks an open plain and a waterhole, which is a favourite drinking spot for both elephant and buffalo, especially during the dry winter months.

Other wildlife frequently encountered in the area includes lion, leopard, spotted hyena, cheetah, giraffe, sable, roan, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck.

Led by highly experienced guides, game drives and nature walks provide the perfect opportunity to explore this private concession. On evening drives you go out in search of the nocturnal species such as lesser bushbaby, caracal, porcupine, scrub hare, spring hare and even honey badger.

There is also a log-pile hide near the camp, which is a wonderful way to spend your siesta time as you watch the comings and goings of wildlife at the mud wallow here. Cultural visits to the local village/school can also be arranged.

The camp consists of 9 bright and airy tents including one family unit, which are set either side of the main area with views of the waterhole.

The main guest areas consist of a spacious lounge and dining area, which lead onto an expansive deck with an open campfire. In addition, the refreshing swimming pool and its loungers are ideal for a spot of afternoon relaxation, while a small upper deck is an ideal location from which to watch wildlife visiting the waterhole.
