Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Though damaged through shortsighted tourism schemes in the 1960s, these caves are still worth a visit for their eerie dark tunnels and stunning limestone formations.

We did the heritage tour at the Cango caves. They also offer the adventure tour where youll have to crawl through narrow spaces. Tour was interesting, where the guide told about history. Cango caves are very beautiful and a must see on your trip on the garden route.

Didn't know what to expect as my dad had booked this part of the trip. I was blown away. The rock formations were awesome in the true sense of the word.

Everyone should go and visit places like this so that they can stand and stare in wonder at the marvels of the natural world.

Best experience climbing and crawling through narrow spaces. We will definitely do that again! And their food and view from restaurant is amazing! Our guide also knew exactly how to help everyone. Thanks

The caves are easily accessible, and very beautiful. Lots of stairs, so probably not suitable for those with limited mobility. Our guide tried hard to be entertaining during the hour-long tour, but should remember that those people might find jokes suggesting the fragility and stupidity of women, criticizing those from other tribes in South Africa ( while telling a story about a woman who once became stuck in one of the caves) and making fun of people who are gay, disrespectful and offensive.

The standard tour was amazing
Lasts about an hour
Easy to walk and our guide was awesome.
Tours leave on the hour so plan accordingly as you can only enter by going on a tour.
Luckily we arrived right before 10am. We had a group of 40 or so. The features in this cave system are some of the best I have seen rivaling Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico USA.
