Featured Safari Destination by GURU
Nestled discreetly beneath a grove of false mopane trees, Davison's is located in the private Linkwasha Concession – one of the most prolific wildlife areas in Hwange National Park.
Hidden within a treeline, this classic African safari camp, with eight light and airy tents and one family unit, overlooks an open plain and a waterhole that is a favourite drinking spot for elephant and buffalo.
The main area comprises a spacious lounge and dining area, leading onto an expansive deck with an open campfire area, perfect for convivial evening musings or star gazing.
The refreshing pool and its loungers are beautifully positioned for relaxation, while a small upper deck is an ideal location from which to watch wildlife at the waterhole.
Hwange’s mix of different veld and landscape types means that game viewing is productive year round. Wildlife frequently encountered in our area includes lion, large herds of elephant, buffalo, cheetah leopard, spotted hyaena, cheetah, giraffe, sable, roan, blue wildebeest, impala, waterbuck and reedbuck.
In summer, wildebeest, zebra and eland are found in abundance on the open plains, while in winter elephant congregate in enormous numbers around the waterholes. Birdlife in the area is prolific (400+) and varied.
Game drives take place in open Land Rovers and are led by highly experienced guides through the most productive area of Hwange National Park. The varied habitats and vegetation types as well as countless waterholes mean that drives are exciting with diverse species to be seen.
Over and above having access to profesional walking guides which allow you to explore some of the densest concentrations of game in Africa, you also have access to the Hwange ‘night act’, which includes nocturnal species such as lesser bushbaby, spotted hyaena, leopard, lion, Selous mongoose, pangolin, caracal, porcupine, scrub hare, springhare and even honey badger.
As the concessionaire of the private Linkwasha and Makalolo areas in south-eastern Hwange National Park, Wilderness Safaris have created solid partnerships with Zimbabwe’s Parks and Wildlife Management Authority (ZPWMA) and other conservation entities, as well as the local community, in order to protect the wildlife and support the people that live in surrounding villages.

Little Governors’ Camp is a luxury safari camp located on the edge of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The camp is approached by a boat ride across the Mara River, then an escorted walk through the riverine forest, making the camp quiet and undisturbed. Guest tents at Little Governors’ have wooden decks with large verandahs for guests to enjoy the constant game activity that takes place around the marsh in front of camp. Guests may need to make way for elephants which sometimes visit the camp at lunchtime.
Little Governors’ Camp has been awarded a Gold Eco-Rating from Eco – Tourism Kenya.
Savuti is set on the productive Savute Channel – a refuge for a variety of wildlife and a fascinating natural phenomenon: When dry, it is a rich feeding ground and corridor between the mopane woodlands for both plains game and predators. When the waters flow, game congregates around it in numbers. Activities include day and night game drives, nature walks and boating (water levels permitting).
Canvas-and-thatch tents (including a family unit) and main area extend outwards on raised decks, facing the Savute Channel. A log-pile hide and a sunken hide provide unique settings to watch wildlife at the water's edge.
