Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
Davison’s Camp lies deep in the heart of Hwange National Park, in the remote Linkwasha Concession – one of the best game viewing areas in the entire park. Classic African tented units are expertly hidden beneath a grove of trees, overlooking a waterhole and the wild open plain.
The camp is named after Ted Davison, the founder of Hwange National Park, and the site lives up to the impressive legacy with an authentic bush experience. Wildlife roams freely here with lions, elephants, buffalo, leopards, white rhinos, spotted hyenas, giraffes, wildebeests, and impalas frequently spotted near the camp.
Eight twin-bedded ensuite tents, one family tent, and the main area of Davison’s Camp offer views onto the active waterhole. The main area includes a spacious lounge and dining room, leading out onto an expansive pine deck and an open campfire area. A refreshing pool also looks out over the waterhole, and a small upper deck offers the ideal perch to watch wildlife by day and gaze at the stars by night.

- Location & Getting There:
Davison’s Camp lies deep in the heart of Hwange National Park, in the remote Linkwasha Concession. It is an 11-hour 30-minute international flight from OR Tambo International Airport, connecting to Victoria Falls. The Camp is also serviced by the private Linkwasha airstrip, a 40-minute drive from camp. The airstrip is called Linkwasha.
Davison's Camp has nine ensuite classic African tents, including one two-bedroom family tent. Each spacious tent is comfortably furnished with separate ensuite shower and a private veranda for taking in the incredible scenery.
Tents are thoughtfully nestled in the wild, offering spaces that feel deeply connected to the vastness of nature. Watch as sunlight casts the first golden light of day across warm wood floors, accented with traditional woven rugs. Cozy up under a down duvet in sumptuous beds. Feel the pull of Africa with natural materials, finishes, and accessories all around.
A stay at Davison’s Camp puts you closer to nature than you’ve ever dreamed possible. Head out on game drives in the early morning and afternoon, led by highly experienced guides. Venture out for an evening drive focusing on the nocturnal species that come out to play under the stars. Experience the park on foot on a walking safari. Or go for a guided tour of a local village where you’ll meet the headman or headwoman and enjoy cultural exchanges with the villagers. Lions, elephants, buffalo, leopards, white rhinos, spotted hyenas, giraffes, wildebeests, and impalas – witness the incredible range of species that roam the land.
Davison's Camp does welcome children (with the two-bedroom family tent being an ideal base), however, keep in mind that apart from guided safari activities, specific activities for children are not offered.
