I loved the cave tour and have only the best to say about the tour guide, Joseph. Thank you. However, I deeply resent being ripped off by the restaurant there. R30 for a toasted cheese sandwich (check out the photo). They wanted an extra R10 for chips. What a rip off

Wondercave is a small but nice cave There's guided tour every hour and the guides are friendly. Once you take the elevators down, you cannot come back before the tour has finished. I've been to better caves before but, if you have some time left, I would recommend a visit.

Modern earthy walkways and exhibits. The caves are well preserved and tour-guides are extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter. The tour is easy going and doesn't feel scripted.

We had a good time. The guide first give you a bit of information and background about the cave and its history before going down. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The cave is amazing. They tell you a lot when down there as well and it is amazing to actually realize what humans are capable of without the... More

On its own I probably wouldnt have done this as its not really out "thing" but as an added bonus/extra to the... More

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.
