The trip from Victoria Falls to Davison's Wilderness Camp involved a three hour drive in the coach to the pick-up point, then a further three hours in a jeep. During the second half of the journey, we saw a lot of wildlife, so it was like being on a game drive. We had a great driver called Douglas, who was...

Davison's camp was one of 3 safari camps during our trip, and it was definitely our favorite. We stayed 3 nights and could have done another. First, Hwange is amazing as the animals are fairly habituated to seeing safari cars, and in this case we mainly stayed in the Wilderness Safari's private concession here and had many, many lion spottings....

We stayed in 4 safari lodges on holiday during March &, while all were good, this was our favourite. The Hwange NP was pretty much our fantasy Africa & the 'old colonial' feel of the camp reinforced this feeling. While the camp has all mod-cons, some of the furniture had been taken from a much older camp so Davison's felt...

A Safari in the Rainy season? You bet! Spent 6 nights at 2 different Safari Camp Concessions. Wilderness Safari’s Davison Camp rated personally better than African Safari’s Somalisa Camp simply because the volume and different types of animal sightings was dramatically better at Davison due to Wilderness Safaris having two concession areas with double the acreage to roam and find...

We visited Davison's Camp from 7th - 11th Nov 2016.

The tents have a Power socket near the bedside to charge mobiles /...

My fiancee and I stayed here for 4 nights and 5 days in August, 2016. It was quite a trek for us to reach the camp (we're from the U.S.) but the good news is that the safari starts on the ride from the airstrip. Our guide, Temba, was extremely knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and most importantly,...

My third safari in Africa and my first tented safari. Hard to describe what it was like. First of all, it was luxurious in every way. Each raised tent had full bathroom with all amenities, comfortable beds, etc. The food and service could not have been better. But what made this amazing was the people and the animals.

We had been on safari previously, but this was our first time staying within a park itself. The camp is set up with nine permanent tents. They are nicely appointed and the dining area and lounge are inviting and help create a family atmosphere. About a hundred yards from the camp is a water hole that attracts a multitude of...

This is a small camp (nine, I believe, very comfortable "permanent" tents), so the number of lodgers at any particular time are few. As most evening meals, at least, are served at one large, beautifully-appointed communal table, this provides a great opportunity to get to know fellow guests and share experiences about the days' drives. The staff is top-notch. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
