4Cs Projects at Davison's Camp

As the concessionaire of the private Linkwasha and Makalolo areas in south-eastern Hwange National Park, Wilderness Safaris has taken responsibility for many aspects of the conservation of this magnificent wild location.


Hwange Water Supply Project

During the dry season, water resources are tested to the limit. Wilderness Safaris maintains some 22 boreholes in the Park, supporting them both logistically and financially. This includes daily refuelling and maintenance of pumps.

Hwange Anti-Poaching Project

Along the Park’s southern boundary, many mammals fall victim to snaring. Wilderness thus has joined Hwange in combatting the effects of poaching, conducting patrols and removing snares.

Village Schools Rehabilitation

A number of schools in the villages that lie on the boundaries of Hwange have been in need of everything from classrooms to chalk. Wilderness works with Children in the Wilderness and many donors to provide all equipment as well as teacher training and accommodation, so that the children can acquire an education.

School Nutrition Programme

In 2008, it was found that many children were getting so little to eat they could not even walk to school. Wilderness Safaris, its guests and Children in the Wilderness have since then provided one meal on every school day of the year to the children of five schools on the outskirts of Hwange.

Children in the Wilderness

Children in the Wilderness Zimbabwe runs a yearly camp programme, where Davison’s Camp is closed to paying guests for three to four days. The programme is aimed at increasing the children’s understanding of their natural environment, whilst inspiring them for the future. These camps are preceded by weekly Eco-Club programmes at the nearby schools where children can discuss and expand their knowledge of environmental issues.

Pack for a Purpose

Wilderness Safaris has partnered with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit organisation that provides travellers with up-to-date information about required supplies for community-based projects. Guests that would like to bring along a contribution can view the needs list for Davison’s Camp’s community projects on the Pack for a Purpose website.

A Quote From Our Guests

“ Everything about our stay was superb. The people, guides, staff, managers, and the lodging and the food. If you truly want to see elephants in every size, grouping, and activity, this is the destination. It was a very special experience. ”
