Davison's Camp

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, this camp, with its 8 tents and a family tent, offers a wonderful bush experience. Both the tents and the separate main area, comprising a lounge, dining room, and open campfire area, look out over the productive waterhole.

Activities include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, or guided walks in the early mornings, while during the siesta hours, guests can view wildlife coming down to the waterhole to drink from their tent veranda or the main area.

Area Attractions

Hwange National Park is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe at 14 651 kmē with varied habitats and vegetation types. The park is predominately Kalahari sandveld supporting teak and mopane woodlands, dry Acacia scrub and is interspersed with saltpans and grasslands that support enormous species diversity and provide a true wilderness experience.

Located on the border with Botswana, Hwange was proclaimed some 75 years ago and has served as a haven for one of the densest concentrations of game in Africa. In particular, its great herds of Cape buffalo and elephant (nearly 30 000) are a sight to see. With over 100 mammal species, Hwange has some of the highest mammal diversity for any national park in the world, including: slender mongoose, yellow mongoose, banded mongoose, Selous mongoose, dwarf mongoose, honey badger, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, side-striped jackal, lesser bushbaby, vervet monkey, Chacma baboon, porcupine, aardwolf, spotted hyaena, pangolin, caracal, leopard, African wildcat, lion, scrub hare, southern giraffe, hippo, springhare, warthog and Burchell's zebra. Antelope often seen in the area include common duiker, eland, roan antelope, impala, kudu, sable, steenbok, waterbuck and blue wildebeest. White rhino is another special sight to see here; Wilderness Safaris and Safari & Adventure Co. have recently helped translocate a number of these wonderful beasts into the protected park.

The park is also home to a varied bird community. Typical drier Kalahari birds include Kori Bustard, Crimson-breasted Shrike, Kalahari Scrub-Robin, Scaly-feathered Finch, Cut-throat Finch, Red-eyed Bulbul, Swallow-tailed Bee-eater, Black-cheeked Waxbill and Southern Pied Babbler. The Zambezi teak and false mopane woodlands are home to other birding specials like Arnott's Chat, Bradfield's Hornbill and Racket-tailed Roller. Bat Hawk and African Hobby (summer only) are good finds here, which are sometimes seen at dusk hunting bats and swifts. The plains are alive with pipits, larks, coursers and wheatears like African Pipit, Dusky Lark (in summer), Temminck's Courser and Capped Wheatear. Raptors are plentiful including rare Red-necked Falcon, Dickinson's Kestrel, Martial Eagle, five vulture species and accipiters like Shikra and Gabar Goshawk. In the summer months the bird list is greatly increased by migratory species like Southern Carmine Bee-eaters, Black Kites, Broad-billed Rollers, various cuckoo species, Abdims Storks and European Bee-eater.
