Davison’s Camp

Wilderness collection


 

Overview

Place: Davison’s Camp is situated in a remote, wildlife-rich 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. Game drives and nature walks explore the private concession. 

Accommodation: Beneath the ancient false mopane trees of Davison’s, nine bright and airy tents (including a family unit) span either side of the expansive main area complete with fire pit, raised viewing deck and separate pool area. 

Purpose: We take responsibility for pumping and maintaining 14 of Hwange’s boreholes in the Concession to sustain its wildlife, especially in winter when water sources become scarce.

Game drives take place in open Land Rovers and are led by our highly experienced guides through our private Wilderness Safaris concessions which are situated in the most productive area of Hwange National Park. The varied habitats and vegetation types as well as countless waterholes mean that drives are exciting with diverse species to be seen.

Davison's Camp - 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, qualified walking safari guide.

Davison's Camp - Evening drives

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

Usually around four hours and guided by one of the local villagers or a Wilderness guide, it often includes a guided tour of the school, meeting the headman or headwoman and enjoying cultural exchanges with the villagers.
