Wow! What an amazing day! A short bus ride then a ride in a dinky little train through the forest with fern whipping through the open sides of the little carriages. Then it was the rather rigorous trek through the bush, up a very steep flight of steps to the caves - this was all done decked out in a full wet suit, safety helmet, life jacket and carrying a large rafting tube. No mean feat for a short-legged lady, but managed with the help of the brilliant guide and the much younger members on the trek. Did I mention it was a very hot day? But oh so worth it! The caves were brilliant with their stunning display of stalagmites and stalactites, then into the inner tubes to drift in the water through the most magical place we've ever been. The glowworms have to be seen to be believed! Out of the cave system, it was onto the Nile River to float our way through some rapids (be aware of sandflies on this stretch!) and back to the start of the trek and the train. Sadly the area was in a state of drought when we did this, so the river was very low. It would be brilliant with a higher river flow. Totally recommend.
