Inside Hwange National Park
We take responsibility for pumping and maintaining 15 of Hwange’s boreholes in the Concession to sustain its wildlife, especially in winter when water sources become scarce.
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.
Nestled discreetly beneath a grove of false mopane trees, Davison's 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, overlooks an open plain and a waterhole that is a favourite drinking spot for elephant and buffalo.
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.
• Day and night game drives in 4 x 7-seater open 4x4 Toyota Hiluxes. During winter months hot water bottles (on early morning game drives only), blankets and lined ponchos are provided.

Davison’s offers the most affordable way to enjoy a Hwange private concession experience. Beneath the ancient false mopane trees, the shady camp with its adjacent waterhole attracts large numbers of animals, especially thirsty herds of elephant in the dry season.
