Nestled in a grove of false mopane trees, nine, airy en-suite tents, including a family unit, make up the accommodation at Davison’s. Inspired by the natural palette beyond the camp, African décor and earthy tones create a calm, authentic atmosphere. From the vantage point of your tent, gaze out over the waterhole where a procession of wildlife comes to slake their thirst.

At Davison’s, dishes are created from fresh produce grown locally, a celebration of indigenous grains and fruits. Savour a sundowner and local snacks at one of Hwange’s pans, then gather around the fire in the boma while dinner cooks over the flames.

Wilderness Davisons Zimbabwe Purpose Impact

Your presence matters

Just by visiting Davison’s, you become part of an ambitious project to monitor and protect Hwange’s elephants. On game drives, keep your ears and eyes open for our collared elephants, which provide vital information about migratory patterns. Search for herds of buffalo, prides of lion, leopards, cheetahs, any of the nearly 100 other mammal species found in the park, and which we help conserve.






Davison's experiences

Experience an early morning guided walk at Davison’s. Smell the petrichor - the unmistakable scent of African soil after rain - count the toes in a fresh leopard track left in the sand, feel the warmth of the sun on your skin. Cruise off-the-beaten-track Hwange in search of big cats and rare antelope, or get a behind-the-scenes look at real-life conservation with the Scorpion Anti-Poaching Unit.


Explore camps in Hwange

Davison’s is positioned in one of Hwange National Park’s most wildlife-rich regions within the Linkwasha-Makalolo Private Wilderness Area. Davison’s is situated in south-eastern Hwange, where a tremendously diverse environment, coupled with year-round availability of water, means the region teems with elephants, and antelope and their predators.
