Amazing limestone natural formation of a cave, the world heritage site. Must see a place for nature lovers. It is on your way to Rhino & Lion Park. Visit both and you will not be disappointed.

I've been back many times with local and international visitors. A great day out if you combine it with the Rhino and Lion reserve next door.

Other than the very steep incline to get to the entrance of the cave (89 steps at a 45 degree angle) the experience was awesome. The guides are well informed and made the underground adventure worthwhile.

The whole family enjoys the mystery of God's creation 60m below the surface. Excellent guides and safe trip for all. Just be prepared for the climb up the stairs at the end (it's not as bad as it sounds!)

Hi Karen, I would say 5-6 years recommended and older, but young children who are interested can also go. The entrance is down some steep stairs and the floor in the cave may be uneven or wet and there are bats. So the... More
