Located in the magnificent scenic Matobo Hills and set in 2000 acres of wilderness, against a backdrop of massive boulders, Big Cave Camp has seven comfortable A frame, stone under thatch chalets each with its own en suite bathroom and private balcony with panoramic views of the surrounding hills and valleys. The emphasis at Big Cave Camp is on outdoor entertainment with breakfast and lunch served in the "Leopard's Lair". At night dinner is served around a traditional campfire with the magnificent backdrop of the Matobo Hills behind. The Matobo are home to an impressive array of wildlife, birdlife (including a number of raptors) and magnificent flora.

In the nearby small, but well stocked Matobo Hills National Park one is fairly sure to see black and white rhino and the fortunate may also see leopard. The spectacular granite outcrops house numerous secret passages and rock shelters offering a rich historic experience: from 20 000 year old rock paintings of the San bushmen era, to relics of the times of Lobengula and later Cecil John Rhodes. Activities include: birding (visit raptor nest sights); nature walks; game drives; guided tours of Rhodes Grave and World's View; visits to an Ndebele village, and Cyrene Mission (donations to village).
