Great to see limestone cave that has not been stripped. The columns that have even produced over the years are spectacular. Good selection for lunch that was tasty.

A really stunning cave! Essentially only one cavan, but a really beautiful one. The guide was not the best, but you don't need a great guide to appreciate the splendor that is Wonder Cave. I highly recommend it.

A friend suggested we try these caves instead of going straight to Sterkfontein, and we were thrilled! The cave is hidden away down a secret crevasse, accessed by a steep flight of stairs and a little old lift. Inside is magical though, with stalactites and...More
