Davison's Camp

Named after the founder and first warden of the Hwange National Park, Ted Davidson, Davison’s Camp is sited on the Linkwasha Concession in the southeast of the park.

The 8 tents and a family tent have been elegantly hidden beneath a grove of false Mopane trees. The tents and the separate main area, containing the dining room, lounge, and open campfire, overlook a busy waterhole and plains area.

Activities available at Davison’s Camp include open 4×4 vehicle game drives and guided walks in the mornings. Enjoy viewing game drinking at the waterhole from the tent verandas or from the main camp during the siesta time.

Game viewing in one of the best areas of the park will give both variety and volume. Frequently observed are large herds of elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, white rhino, giraffe, wildebeest, sable, hyaena, waterbuck, and reedbuck. On the plains in summer, zebra, wildebeest, and eland are found in abundance. In winter, with the water shortages, elephant congregate in massive herds, to drink.

There is prolific birdlife in the area, with over 400 species in the park. With teak woodlands and Kalahari sandveld present locally, numerous species are observed on the concession.
