There is nothing as pleasant than disappearing into the bush. Off the map, into the wild. We are in Hwange National Park, a gigantic stretch of wilderness close to the border with Botswana. Until now we didn’t stay in a tented bush camp so we are happy that Davison Camp is our next stop. Don’t expect sleeping in small tents, with limited comfort. Davisons Camp, operated by Wilderness Safaris, has nine comfy tents with plush beds and private toilet and shower. When you are lucky the animals roam around the tents at night. Ellies, buffalo, lions, leopard… Dangerous? No not really, as long as you don’t go out at night to have a smoke on your veranda it is fine. For those not overly excited about sitting two times a day for hours in a bumpy 4×4, you can just stay in camp and admire the views over the water hole in the distance. All kinds of animals come to drink, some get even quite close to camp to sip from the fresh water bubbling up from the waterhole. It makes you thursty. Luckily there is always a cold Zambezi beer waiting in the fridge.
