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!)

Not to be missed in the Lion and Rhino Park. This is one of those hidden gems that few people know about. 80 Steps down which is not too bad but could be a challenge coming back but believe me it's worth the effort.

Cost as of Dec 2016 was R100 per person card only. There are steep steps (about 50) down to an elevator which takes you into the cavern. We... More

A nice outing for the weekend, especially for the nature buffs. A short tour underground with a little bit of history. The tour guys are quite entertaining and make the trip fun.

Fascinating tale of miner's exploits allowing for a good understanding of the conditions and hardships they faced. Well worth a look.

Stunning natural beauty. A knowledgeable tour guide with so much insight. A great one hour tour of the cave that can be followed with a drive through the nature reserve to spot the wild life.

this is a cave just under the earth's fault line which runs next to the rhino and lions park. It is definitely worth visit if in the park. The stalagmites / stalactites are beautiful, although a lot of the limestone was taken out by miners at the beginning of previous century.
