Lovely shady campsite and the kids enjoyed playing in the rocks. Very helpful staff, who met us and built a fire for us even though we arrived late at night. Clean ablutions with hot water!! The walk across to the lodge is also worth it - stunning setting.

We really enjoyed our stay at Big Cave Campsite. The area is beautiful and the campsite very well run with beautiful trees and well placed braai areas. The camp manager was very helpful and attentive and made us a campfire on our arrival. We would definitely go back every time we are in the area.

This is a really good campsite in Miombo woodland. Well cared for and everything works, clean ablutions, hot showers, quiet and peaceful. Brown looks after it all perfectly.
