Davison’s Camp is owned and operated by Wilderness Safaris. It is one of the company’s Adventures Camps, larger than other properties in the Wilderness portfolio and aiming to provide a convivial environment. However, in common with all Wilderness camps, Davison’s provides great guiding, excellent food and drink – a friendly atmosphere all round!
ACCESS & LOCATION:
It is situated among ancient false mopane trees in the Linkwasha Concession, one of the best areas of Hwange National Park for viewing game.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
The main facilities of Davison’s Camp consist of a large lounge with bar, plus separate dining room. The latter has a long table for communal meals and a side table for tea and coffee, available all day. Both lounge/bar and diner are housed within a V-shaped building. This is open fronted in design, presenting superb views of the waterhole. Guests may move even closer to visiting wildlife via the building’s pine deck and swimming pool. There is also a campfire area, open to the stars.
The guest accommodation is located along a well-trodden elephant path and comprises eight tented rooms with twin beds or double bed in addition to a two-bedroom family tent. All bedrooms have a ceiling fan under a canvas roof, a few rugs spread over concrete floors, and mesh windows affording panoramic vistas of the surrounding pan. Guests also enjoy spotting wildlife from their tent’s private balcony. And each tent has an en-suite shower room with flush toilet, deep basin and indoor shower – the camp even provides complimentary toiletries.
Activities at Davison’s Camp focus on game drives by day and by night, plus walking safari. The Linkwasha Concession boasts impressive populations of all Big Five animals (though please note it is very rare to see rhino) and other species such as giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and eland. The waterholes in the area are particularly popular with elephant! At night, hyena, mongoose, pangolin and porcupine roam the plains. Guests also have the opportunity of visiting a local village, guided by a villager or Wilderness guide. During this four-hour excursion, it is possible to tour the local school, meet the village headman/headwoman and get to know the villagers.
