This truly is a must. The guides are really interesting to listen to and the cave is an absolute wonder to behold. It is not difficult to walk around, however there are around 89 steps that you need to climb down ( and up at the end) which are set at a 45 degree angle.

This is an ok attraction, but hardly a wonder. The entrance is a steep 85 steps, closely arranged and descending at a 45 degree angle, so be careful, going down and gather your strength to go back up. It is a small cave and for a first cave venture you will not be disappointed, but if you have been to... More

It certainly lives up to its name. Its something that you have to do.and is for all ages. Very affordable and the plus is that we were fortunate to see six different animals on the way to the cave. Wonder cave will compete with Cango caves and Sudwala caves

Wonderful cave to visit while at the Rhino and Lion park. Initially the steep walk down the stairs to get to the lift was a bit daring, after which I throughly enjoyed the cave. The constant 16 degrees Celsius is very refreshing during the hot summer months. Tour lasts about an hour.

This was part of an all day tour we did with a private driver. There are quite a few steps on a 45 degree angle and then a lift takes you the rest of the way. It is apparently the 3 rd largest on in SA or so our lovely Scottish guide told us. It was just the 3 of... More

If visiting the amazing Rhino and Lion Park (better than Lion Park) you must stop and go to the wondercaves. Ticket available at entrance.

If you have never visited the Cango Caves in the Eastern Cape, then to me, this is the second best place to go. Its relatively small compared to Cango, but still an awesome experience. Add it into a day trip with other activities in the area including Cradle of Humankind, Maropeng. If you do not like cramped spaces, the elevator... More

The wondercaves is worth the visit, down a long flight of stairs and a short trip in an elevator , you descend to see the most amazing formations, the most famous of which is "Madonna and Child" :-) , excellent guides on hand to answer any questions you may have. This attraction is close the the Rhino and LIon Park... More

The guided tour is well done and most attractions rely on the fertile imagination of the observer. Takes about 40 minutes and includes a steep metal stairway which is much easier to navigate on the downward journey. Surprised that there is no medical waiver! The fossilized remains of the baboon and remnants of limestone mining were the highlights for me.

We really enjoyed this family outing coupled with the Rhino and Lion Park. It is kid friendly - my 4 year ols managed all the steps with ease! The cave is full of interesting geographical and historical facts.
