          Our overnight stay at Big Cave Campsite was very comfortable and the ablutions very very clean with hot water. Due to another group also camping there we were on the outskirts of the camp and had to use long leads for electricity points. We suggest more electricity points and also more water points for any campers not close to the ablutions. Another suggestion is better signposting at the gate.Thank youLiz

          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.

          We had a booking at Big Cave Campsite and they knew we were coming. We were running late (Beithbridge) and tried phoning them, with no success. When we arrived at the campsite the gates were locked and we could not get hold of anybody. We phoned the number and left messages with no success. Luckily accross the road we managed to find accommodation at the Granite Ridge Lodge, what a lovely place!
