With some new renovations just completed, and a brand-new minibus joining the fleet, Big Cave Camp is starting the new year with a bang!
Big Cave Camp has completely renovated all the twin rooms to modernise them while still keeping the rustic charm that is synonymous with Big Cave. This involved replacing the basins, toilets, and showers with modern sanitary ware, and the showers have had new stone cladding and new copper plumbing and shower roses installed, as well as a fitted clear glass shower door.
They have also improved the lighting considerably in the rooms using downlighters that have been set into suspended teak lighting boxes. In the main bedrooms, the headboards were replaced, and the rooms were re-designed so that each bed now also has its own mosquito nets hung from a teak frame that surrounds the bed. The beds are 2 twins that sit next to each other and are made up with mattress converters as a king size bed or can be kept as twins.
The rooms also have new curtaining, and new fabrics on the ottomans, as well as new teak/wrought iron units for the tea and coffee station, and clothes hanging/storage area.
New Mini Bus
Big Cave Camp also has a new Toyota Regius Minibus which will be used for airport transfers and to transfer guests to Hwange National Park. This will make our guests lives a lot easier and make Big Cave even more accessible to travellers.
A little more about Big Cave Camp
Perched atop an enormous granite whaleback, surrounded by precariously balancing boulders, golden plains and kopjes, Big Cave Camp is an intimate safari lodge in Zimbabwe’s oldest park, Matobo. These magical hills are considered a UNESCO World Heritage site due to the area’s rich cultural heritage.
Big Cave Camp boasts sophisticated African architecture as the thatched chalets at Big Cave Camp are designed to incorporate the colossal boulders surrounding the lodge and fits in seamlessly with the natural environment.
Guests at Big Cave can enjoy a variety of activities at the camp in between meals and relaxing at the poolside. Aside from visiting the famous rock art galleries in the area, activities at the camp include game viewing, rhino tracking, mountain biking, cultural visits to the local village and school, birdwatching, yoga/wellness activities and trips to World’s View/Rhode’s Grave.
