Accommodation rating: Good Standard
Located in south-eastern Linkwasha Concession of the Hwange National Park, Davison's Camp is a fine example of a simple, well run bush camp. Named after the founder of Hwange National Park and its first warden, Ted Davison, the camp lies nestled under a canopy of false mopane trees overlooking open plains and an active waterhole. Nine simple, yet comfortable, tented chalets are bright and airy with polished concreted floors covered with comfy rugs. A broad wooden partition separates the bedroom from the ensuite bathroom which features an indoor and outdoor shower and flushing toilet. Outside, a private concrete veranda offers panoramic views into the surrounding bush.
Both the tents and the separate main area, comprising a lounge, dining room, open campfire area and pool, look out over the waterhole, which is popular with elephants all year round, and in the summer months attracts a wide variety of animals, including eland, wildebeest and zebras. Meals are eaten communally both inside the dining area and alfresco under the stars.
There are normally two activities per day at Davison's Camp: one in the early morning and another in late afternoon with a long siesta in between. Walking safaris are available in the early morning, with wildlife drives in open top Land Rovers in the afternoon. Night drives are also possible.
