Big Cave Camp

Big Cave Camp

Matobo National Park

Big Cave Camp Location Map

Big Cave Camp sits atop an enormous granite hill, 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.

The central living areas in the camp are set against a backdrop of massive boulders that form part of the design of the structures. The Leopard's Lair includes a teak bar, lounge and communal dining area. The bar and dining area features a huge rock enclosed in the room, with trees growing through the roof creating a natural atmosphere. Dining is a relaxed affair where guests and the Lodge Managers all sit around the dinner table together.

The adjacent library is a cosy retreat for those wishing to spend a quiet moment learning more about the history of the area. It is a quiet area with fireplace and adequate local reading material.

Outside, the natural rock pool and sundeck is a cool contrast to the warm granites that surround the pool. Refuge can also be taken at midday in the nearby pool boma area where ice cold drinks are served.

At sundown the cave-style boma is illuminated by lanterns as guests sit around a traditional fire while recounting stories of the days activities.

The 8 thatched A-frame cottages, each with en-suite bathroom and private balcony, resonate African creative flair.

Big Cave also offers drives into the Matoba National Park to view not only rhino, but also leopard and a selection of plains game.  Guests can enjoy a once in a lifetime opportunity to creep up on these wonderful animals on foot once the correct area has been located by the professional guide. Night drives on the Big Cave wilderness area can also be taken (depending on the time of the year) to view the nocturnal creatures of the Matobo Hills.
