About Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is making its comeback after its political woes and visitors to this country will enjoy the freedom of wildlife viewing without the tourists. Options include canoeing safaris, walking and horse or elephant-back, led by some of Africa’s most experienced guides (the Zimbabwe guiding license takes four years and is the most comprehensive in operation).

We can’t mention Zimbabwe without in the same breath mentioning the mighty Zambezi river - giving life to millions on its journey - and the Victoria Falls, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.

Rainy seasons: approx. November to March

Big Cave Camp

The Big Cave Camp wilderness area was purchased by Cyril Waddy in 1947 and has been in the family ever since. The Waddys are from pioneering stock and have lived in the country for four generations. Avid bush lovers, the entire family spend a large part of their time exploring, hiking and learning about the many 
species of trees, flora and fauna that abound in the Matobo Hills.

Big Cave Camp was started by Mike and Yvonne Waddy as a recreational facility for the family in 1980 and was subsequently developed as a tourist facility by David Waddy. Dave can recall how they first lived in a two man tent, with no electricity or generator. Everything was either paraffin or gas operated. Today they are still very much involved in promoting tourism to Zimbabwe, after what has been a tough few years.

The lodge was expanded to accommodate 16 guests, the property restored to pristine condition and a wildlife sanctuary was created for the natural species of game that occur in the Matobo Hills.
