We stayed at several Wildnerness Camps during our stay in Hwange National Park. All of the camps are perfect. The service is second to none. In less than an hour the entire staff knew the names of every guest in our party and treated us like family in their home. We felt comfortable and welcome from the minute we arrived.... More

We stayed towards the end of October with the hope of viewing lots of animals and we weren't disappointed. Having stayed in a mixture of safari accommodation (including large lodges and small self-catering campsites), I strongly recommend the luxury of staying in Davison's.

What an exciting adventure at an "adventure" camp. Every game drive was full of surprises and exciting encounters with the animals. The staff was outstanding as was the food and living arrangements. This should be at least a classic camp. Would return to visit although the airport taxes are extremely high with a departure tax of one hundred dollars! Still... More

Set under a shady grove of ancient false mopane trees, Davison's Camp overlooks grassy plains and a shallow pan that entices a steady stream of plains game and elephant herds in their hundreds, especially in the water-scarce winter months. Named after Ted Davison, the first warden of the Park who devoted 30 years of his life to it, Davison's offers the quintessential Hwange experience combining excellent wildlife viewing with the opportunity to visit a local village and participate in community projects. • 9 tents (1 family) • game drives • nature walks • village visits • viewing platforms ... more   less
