Magical Rocks!
We stayed for two nights at Big Cave Camp and really loved it. Set in the Matopos Hills, which are rated as being one of the top 50 geological sites in Africa, it is simply beyond stunning. We especially enjoyed the tranquility of the place, Lin and her staff are wonderful, Dawanda in particular. Food good, comaraderie created by sharing meals with other guests proved most enjoyable. Highly recommend.

Unforgettable nature experience
The area and views are simply amazing. If you want to be away from the hussle and noise of cities this is the perfect place: no TV and nature is right out of your window. The service are superfriendly. WiFi a bit limited/expensive from a SA perspective. Car did not reach reception area, needed to walk over the rock surface. People with walking difficulties may find it difficult. The food was fantastic, very generous portions and delicious ! we were very few people stying at that time and we had dinner all together at the same big table with the staff. Great talk ! I will definetely go back. Went for a hike around, amazing.
