Abseil in through the roof of a cavern used on the reality show, "The Amazing Race", dressed in overalls, helmets and torches. Spend 1.5 - 2 hours on an underground adventure by torchlight with highly experienced and knowledgable guides.

All Wild Cave Adventures sites are within a 40 minute drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage area.

Booking is always necessary to secure a place on an adventure. On booking, final details are sent through with where to meet, what to bring and what to wear to make the trip enjoyable. Excursions run all year round - daytime and early evening twilight tours available where the group come out to a starry sky and optional pizza delivery afterwards.

No previous experience is needed but all adventurers should be able-bodied, reasonably fit and keen to try something different!

Young adventurers, from the age of 8 -16 years of age, are most welcome to join specific adventures that are tailor-made for them at a special price.

Located in the Cradle of Humankind, Wild Cave Adventures will take you into the dark caverns beneath the dolomite hills, where early hominins and later limestone miners eked a living. What a fantastic trip. The guides were knowledgeable, safety conscious and had a great sense of humour. Highly recommended to anyone with a sense of adventure. What a great way... More

Muddy, dusty, White. Dark. Cool and air conditioned. Neil and Frederick were amazing guides. Very organized, knowledgeable and friendly. Handled a group of 15 very well. I was very nervous about being in small spaces or having to crawl, but it turned out to be the best part of the tour. Overalls, helmets and lights are provided. It's a unique... More

Even the suiting up with the appropriate equipment was unforgettable, and added to the anticipation. Our tour guide is very knowledgeable, and delivered the information with great enthusiasm,...

Thanks Wild Caves Adventures for an amazing experience!! Our Voortrekker group enjoyed it tremendously and will definitely be back for the other caves! Big thumbs-up for the guides for the great job explaining every part of the cave thoroughly and the special attention for the kids that had some claustrophobia! They specially enjoyed it!

My friend and I visited Wild Cave Adventures while in South Africa and it was much more fun that I could have imagined. We wish we had more time to explore the caves. I was a little nervous going into it because I had never done anything like it, but our guide made me feel really safe and comfortable and... More

Not for the faint-heated this activity but what a fun and exhilarating trip going 85m underground. Our tour guide, Matt, kept us well-informed of interesting facts of both the environment and the history behind the area and the caves. Was well-worth the trip and we felt in good hands. Came out exhausted but would highly recommend this crew. Thanks guys!
