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.

  • A must-visit for anyone who passes through the area and has the time to make the extra stop. Our guide, Alfred, was so informed and entertaining and funny. He really made the experience super enjoyable. I strongly recommend a visit if you can. Come prepared with a clean set of clothes if you want to do the longer 90 minute Adventure tour and are not claustrophobic.
  • Cango Caves are one of the places that you consider visiting Beautiful place, with rocks formation and the feeling of being in side a cave and how the cavemen were living The temperature in side the cave almost constant all round the year between 18-19 C Reasonable entry fees If you are going The adventure tour is the way You can do a cave fit test in reception area to try to fit through the wooden opening When you in side The real cave it feel somehow tighter The regular tour some how boring
