 • Information

Big Cave Camp reposes atop an enormous granite whaleback commanding inspirational views across the famous Matobo National Park. Sophisticated African architecture incorporates colossal boulders into a luxuriously appointed thatched lodge positioned amidst ancient Khoisan rock art.

Big Cave Camp is pleased to be able to offer the overland companies, and 4x4 groups a separate camp site with separate male and female ablution facilities'220 volt electricity'firewood, bar area and a dining area on the Big Cave property. This beautiful camp site is located 3 kilometres from the National Park boundary, with wonderful views down the valley into the National Park. Access is through a separate gate, which can accommodate large vehicles.

Retire at a day's end to the natural rock-pool and sundeck, the Leopard`s Lair lounge and bar, a cave-style boma for pre-dinner drinks or the popular lodge library. The seven thatched A-frame cottages, each with en-suite bathroom and private balcony, resonate African creative flair.

Find solitude within an intimate retreat as secluded as the original Kalanga grain bins that nestle amongst the rocks.
