  • is a giant and beautiful cave, the guided tour is super cool. Even at a certain moment they erase the light to feel what the cave is like. If you're going from Johannesburg to Kruger, from one past, the ride takes about 40 minutes and you walk away about 15 of the way, it's worth the time and the Andanda.

  • I have been to this caves a couple of times and it never gets boring. The tour guides are very informative, funny and they always make sure that you get your money's worth. I love their fish spa too.  more »
  • An affordable historical/geological experience that is well worth the visit, The guides are knowledgeable and the area has been well upgraded since my last visit. Important to note that there is a well stocked shop, a fish foot spa, a butterfly park, a dinosaur park and an entire resort at the bottom of the mountain. Would have loved to spend more time there.
  • Stairs leading up to the caves. Surrounded by nature. We had a excellent tour guide, his name is Innocence. He spoke clearly and kept the group involved with his light humour and interactive style of guiding. He was open to any questions and waited for the group to finish the photos , and even took some for the group members. Lighting is perfect in the cave to emphasize the rock formations.
