      Safari Lodge and Campsite, bordering Matopos Hills National Park, Zimbabwe

      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.

      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.

      Founding Date
      1994
