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 thatch lodge positioned amidst ancient Khoisan rock art.

Retire at 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. Big Cave Camp resides on a 2000-acre private wilderness area that borders Matobo National Park and is included in a World Heritage Area.

There are seven thatched A-frame cottages, each with an en-suite bathroom and a private balcony, which resonate African creative flair. Find solitude within an intimate retreat as secluded as the original Kalanga grain bins that nestle among the rocks. Included is a honeymoon suite as well as family rooms for those with small children.

Game viewing is done both on the private property as well as into the Whovi Game Park. Guests can choose to walk or view the game from open four-wheel drive vehicles to view, in particular, black and white rhino, among a wide variety of plains game. Night drives on the Big Cave wilderness area can be enjoyed, depending on the time of the year, to view the nocturnal creatures of the Matobo Hills.

Matobo Hills boasts one of the highest concentrations of birds of prey anywhere in the world. Big Cave has several nesting sites on and adjacent to the property. The black eagle is one of the more majestic birds to grace the area, and another sought-after species is the elusive Cape Mackinder’s eagle owl. Big Cave offers excellent opportunities for the birdwatcher.

The Matobo Hills has one of the highest concentrations of rock art anywhere in the world. This ancient Khoisan art can be viewed in the both the national park and even within the immediate vicinity of Big Cave Camp. These famous rock art galleries can be visited on foot or by 4x4. One of the more famous sites is Nswatugi Cave, which is normally combined with a trip to Rhodes Grave, World’s View, which is a beautiful drive through the recreational park.

Tours to the nearby Ndebele village and Whitewaters Secondary School provides an insight into the lives of the local people. The school in particular has been supported by guests of Big Cave Camp for many years.

Tucked away into an ancient bushman's shelter, Camp Amalinda's charm will leave an indelible impression on every visitor. Some of the most majestic granite scenery in the world is found in the Matobo Hills. It is here that the hopes, trials and tribulations of the San Bushmen are recorded in the ancient rock art. Mammal and bird species are prolific and include the highest concentration of leopard and black eagle in the world.

Rated one of Africa's top ten boutique lodges by Conde Naste Traveller in 1998. Camp Amalinda consists of nine individually thatched rooms including three romantic honeymoon suites. You'll notice when entering your cave-like suite, the stark contrast between rough granite and uncompromisingly high levels of comfort, style and class - all in the keeping with its surrounds.

Each suite has been individually designed around great boulders and each differs in ambience in order to create a romantic feel without losing the vital soul of Africa herself. The honeymoon suites pay tribute to two great men, CJ Rhodes and King Lobengula, both suites are decorated by a mix of traditional, historic and nostalgic memorabilia. The lounge and entertainment area is tucked away into a bushman shelter with a panoramic view of the Matobo Hills. Delicious meals are served on a massive teak table in the open-air dining room.

A cosy library contains some of the old 'African classics', while a secluded chess room, located among the tree tops guarantees peace and tranquility. For the wine connoisseur, we recommend a visit to our natural cave wine cellar. At the base of the camp is Amalinda's famous 'rock' swimming pool, naturally shaped and carved over centuries by rain and wind erosion from a massive granite dome. It is here where African memories are made.

Safari Spa, among this most miraculous granite backdrop is an irresistible treasure worth experiencing, drift away on crisp linen, while the scents of ancient African aromas swirl under the canopy of thatch and rock. Drops of aromatherapy oils are added to generous amounts of carrot and nut oils for that exclusive and private massage. A sauna is also available. Camp Amalinda is a spiritual sanctuary which incorporates the sensitive beauty of the magnificent Matobo Hills and Africa's wide open spaces.
