“worth visiting in conjunction with the cradle”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

linked to a private game farm, but you can pay for the cave separately (and still see a lot of game on the drive there – but not the lions and wild dogs that are in an enclosure) I found the cave worth a visit as it is close and much more beautiful than the cradle cave where most of the lime stalactites were removed by the miners.

“Mindblowing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

It's interesting to hear the history of the damage done to all the caves in the area by miners seeking the makings of cement which was in turn used in the goldmines. It's a huge relief that these fantastic caves are largely undamaged - and access really is so easy compared to many other cave formations.

“Must see when in Joburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I've been to the wondercave twice and will be returning for a 3rd time defiantely, situated close to krugersdorp and in the Cradel of mankind valley; these caves are a must see for any tourist. I must add that if your tall, it is worth taking a hard hat with you,there are some narrow passages to walk through.

“A true wonder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is one of those destinations that you know you have to see but somehow have not gotten there. Go, it is worth it as it gives a great glimpse into our history.
