Cango Caves, Oudtshoorn

4.5
Wandering the illuminated chambers and halls of Cango Caves, you'll encounter a staggering number of fascinating dripstone formations, ornate crystals, stalactites, and stalagmites. If you're feeling adventurous, you can opt for the two-hour tour, during which you'll need to climb the rocks and crawl into narrow, claustrophobia-inducing passageways, to discover the cave's more remote grottos and pools.

  • Was an average experience. Was having high expectations for these caves as they were bigger and better than the Sudwala caves, but the whole experience was a bit disappointed. It was still amazing to ...  more »
  • It is highly recommended: very worth seeing and very informative guided tour. There are two possibilities: the normal tour in the front area of Cango 1 with very well developed paths (approx. 60 minutes) the adventure tour to the rear area of Cango 1. Well-developed infrastructure (parking, entrance area etc.). Certainly also suitable for a rainy day.

  • The Cango Caves are magnificent. If you don't like small spaces, go for the Heritage tour which is 60 minutes of slow, easy walking, large gorgeous caverns, and interesting facts by amazing tour guides. If you are more adventurous, the Adventure tour is 90 minutes of awesome crawling, sliding, scrambling, climbing and stairs, but is fantastic fun. Highly recommended, and the lovely drive through the mountains to get there is free of charge
  • Love going there... . It's so Amazing and so beautiful... It's a place worth experiencing... I will recommend this place to everyone! And not forgetting the friendly and amazing staff!
