Nestled discreetly beneath a grove of false mopane trees, Davison’s Camp is located in the private Linkwasha Concession – one of the most prolific wildlife areas in Hwange National Park. Hidden within a treeline, this classic African safari camp, with eight light and airy tents and one family unit overlooks an open plain and a waterhole that is a favourite drinking spot for elephant and buffalo.
The main area comprises a spacious lounge and dining area, leading onto an expansive deck with an open campfire area, perfect for convivial evening musings or star gazing. The refreshing pool and its loungers are beautifully positioned for relaxation, while a small upper deck is an ideal location from which to watch wildlife at the waterhole.
Wildlife at Davison’s Camp
Hwange’s mix of different veld and landscape types means that game viewing is productive year round. Wildlife frequently encountered in our area includes lion, large herds of elephant, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, spotted hyaena, giraffe, sable, roan, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck. In summer, wildebeest, zebra and eland are found in abundance on the open plains, while in winter elephant congregate in enormous numbers around the waterholes. Birdlife in the area is prolific (400+) and varied.
