Davison's Camp

Davison's Camp 


Located in the Linkwasha Concession of the famous Hwange National Park, Davison's Camp is a traditional tented safari camp overlooking a prolific waterhole that is visible from the main area and all the tents. The Linkwasha Concession offers excellent year-round game viewing with frequent sightings of lion, elephant, leopard and white rhino as well as a wide variety of antelope.


Davison's Camp lies deep in Hwange National Park, in the south-eastern Linkwasha Concession - one of the best game viewing areas of the entire Park. It is a classic African tented camp, with the units tastefully hidden beneath 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. Nestled under a grove of ancient false mopane trees, Davison’s Camp is situated in a remote north-eastern corner of Hwange National Park. Named after the founder of Hwange National Park and its first warden, Ted Davison, the camp overlooks an extremely productive waterhole that attracts a variety of plains game and predators. Eight twin-bedded tents and one family unit, along with a main area comprising a lounge and dining room, altogether offer the quintessential Hwange experience.


  • Davison’s Camp is located in one of the best game viewing areas of the entire Park.
  • In winter, the waterhole in front of camp is a magnet for wildlife great and small.
  • With over 100 mammal species, Hwange has some of the highest mammal diversity of any national park.

Things to do at Davison's Camp

Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest and most popular national park; our private concession means that sightings of the prolific wildlife are exclusive and private.

Games drives in Open Landrovers

Hwange National Park is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe at 14 651 km² with varied habitats and vegetation types – meaning that game drives are exciting with always something new to be seen. (Wind-resistant ponchos are provided during winter months.)




Morning Walking Safaris

Hwange was proclaimed some 80 years ago and has served as a haven for one of the densest concentrations of game in Africa. There is no better way to experience this park than on foot with an experienced safari guide.





Evening Drives With Spotlight

The Hwange ‘night-act’ includes species such as lesser bushbaby, spotted hyaena, leopard, lion, Selous mongoose, pangolin, caracal, porcupine, scrub hare, springhare and even honey badger.





Davison's Camp Wildlife

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, leopard, spotted hyaena, giraffe, sable, 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.
