The caves are a marvel of how the earth looks after nature and its treasures. The history of the caves and the mining that happened so long ago and they preserved most areas.

This is an amazing stadium that South Africa can be proud of, the parking and access control needs improvement. I don't think there is a bad seat in the entire stadium. The area around the stadium needs some maintainence, it is sad to see grass growing in the beautiful gardens and the pavements.

My friends and I found this to be more than just a 'show cave', as it has many other interesting aspects. Sudwala cave in Mpumalanaga is also very good, with interesting aspects like the first life forms on earth - the stromatalites (blue-green algae). 5 stars for both caves!!

I took my grandson to the Wondercave for his birthday treat. He was enchanted by it. The guide we had was extremely knowledgeable about the Cradle of Human Kind and very informative on the whole subject. The whole area is rich in history and well worth a visit. There is a good cafe/restaurant to refresh in afterwards.

The cave was nice to explore with the guide, it lasted about an hour and some history regarding the cave was given. There are bathroom facilities as well as food and drink.

This is a bit far out, but can be perfect if planned appropriately with the sites in the Magalies region (plenty to do there!) Well worth it, and stunning caves with amazing stalactites and stalactmites that make incredible photos. Spend a full day in the magalies when visiting here and make the most of the drive out of JHB.

The guides are a bit hackneyed but a good effort to employ local knowledge and talent. The precinct is laid out well and is wheel-chair friendly, which is great as... More
