Zimbabwe safari activities at Davison’s Camp include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles and guided walks in the early mornings. During the siesta hours, guests can watch wildlife at the waterhole from their tent veranda or the main area. The evening drives use a spotlight to observe nocturnal species.
Game drives take place in two 7 seater Land Rovers and a 9 seater Land Rover in the mornings and evenings. During the winter months wind-resistant ponchos are provided for guests. Game viewing is good all year round with spectacular dry season concentrations of wildlife around waterholes in Hwange National Park. For a change of pace, an informative walking safari in the morning can be enjoyed with licensed professional guides.
