The camp consists of a small number of individual chalets scattered across the hill with a common area for guests to eat and relax in a small central building. Within the camp itself are numerous large boulders and indeed the public rooms incorporate one of these into the living space to stunning effect.
The Chalets are spotless and perfectly functional with good showers and comfortable beds but the balconies offer the perfect place to take in the sunset and view the Zebra and Wildebeest grazing in the valley.
The camp manager Lynn made our stay a true pleasure and we cannot thank her enough for her hospitality. Even though we were on our own at the camp we never felt uncomfortable due to her kind and relaxed nature. Everything was organised and efficient. The food be it breakfast lunch or dinner was excellent.
We were able to complete a tour with Shepherd who is a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. He loves his job and this made for a great adventure when we were able to walk in the bush to see the bushman art and visit worlds view. Shepherd collected us from our hotel in Bulawayo and dropped us off at the bus station after our two day stay. Lynn even arranged for packed lunches to be provided for the bus journey.
We visited with my wife and 10 year old daughter and the memories of Big Cave Camp will remain with my daughter for life. She loved the Lizards and the Dassies (a kind of Rabbit) scurrying about everywhere. The screeches of Baboons and the talk of Leopards roaming the area added to the sense of being somewhere special.
This is not a luxury camp in the sense of 5*deluxe facilities but if you want to be close to nature,to experience warm hospitality and efficient service.to have good food and company and professional guided tours then go here. You will not regret it. Thank you again Lynn and Shepherd and I promise you I will be back.
