Absolutely a must-see when visiting Zimbabwe. There are quite a few stairs to climb but the view of the caves are totally worth it. The caves are large and the water is beautifully clear and blue.

The Tour Guides are experienced and know the history of the caves. They were able to answer all our questions, and are safety-conscious. Touring the caves is not only enjoyable but good for one's health - as it provides a good work-out.

Everyone should have this experience! Its a beautiful place no doubt. No other exciting activity expect seeing the caves but its worth a visit. Oh there's a picnic area where you can sit and eat later when done which is quite popular in Chinhoyi.

It was a 2 hour drive from Harare to get there as a few police checks on the way. Not really costly to get in and if it was your first time then they supplied a guard. The walk down to each of the caves...More

I am sorry Peter, I can't help you. It is easily drive-able from Harare so we didn't stay!
