While visiting the reserve we also went to the caves. Getting into the caves is not for the faint hearted. 1st you go down a steep and narrow set of stairs and the take a small lift to the floor of the cave. The cave is basically one big hall with impressive formations growing from the ceiling and the floor. The guide takes you through the cave on the path and shows ertakn formations and tells about the history of the cave. Although the tour is not very long it is still worth a visit.

The Wondercave is in the same natural reserve where you can also see Lions and Hippos and I decided to visit it on a Sunday. The tours are every hour and teh duration is about an hour. Last tour on weekends is at 5pm and mid-weeek at 4pm.
The sights are quite amazing and the guide gives you a good background for the reason for the formations. I'm well travelled and stil found the cave very interesting. Well worth the SAR60 which is less then 6 pounds for the entrance and the guide.
Note that there are some steep stairs and that the stairs maybe slippary due to constant water dripping. There is an elevator to lower you to the cave so no climbing required :-)

It was a bit difficult to find the Wondercave but it was worth it. The cave is located within a game park so one can visit both or just the caves. I was traveling with two seniors and two toddlers. All ages enjoyed the visit. Please note that there are many steep steps to the elevator and uneven ground and limited lighting once in the cave. The cave is massive and in fantastic condition and definitely worth the visit ! The guides are friendly and informative....highly recommended. There are clean bathrooms and a snack bar for food and drink.

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 any cave in the US or Europe, then don't get excited.

This cave is situated within the grounds of the Lion and Rhino park, in the Cradle of Humankind. You therefore get a double bonus when going there - seeing some well looked-after animals and going down 60 meters into the third biggest cave in South Africa. An elevator assists you during the last stage of entering and the tour guides are informative and their interaction with the guests is really friendly. They tell some great stories about the Italian miners and are always ready to answer questions. At the top, the restaurant serves good, tasty food at a very reasonable price. Frail and sickly people should take note that the first stairs down towards the elevator are really tough to negotiate and are at a very steep angle. We really enjoyed our visit and will be back again.

Having taken my son to Kango caves the Wonder caves was a big disappointment. They are tiny by comparison and very poorly lit. With that said you should take the kids if you can't get to Kango Caves near Outsdhoorn someday.

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. Not pricey either...

The Wondercaves are definitely worth a visit if you are going to the Rhino and Lion Park. Value for money if you purchase the combination ticket to the park and the caves - the caves then only cost R50 whereas it will cost R120 for only the Wondercaves. This is the 3rd largest cave in South Africa and with only one entrance there are no bats (perfect for anyone with a phobia of bats). The tour is around 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on group size and questions and sets off every hour on the hour. Our tour guide Joseph was very friendly and insightful. There is no crawling, but there are steep stairs going down to the lift and coming back up. The walk around is only about 200m. The lift down provides for a great aerial view of the caves. The caves are always around 16 degrees, but with the humidity it is a very comfortable cool temperature and very much appreciated on a hot day; this makes the caves a great escape from the sun in the middle of the day. There is a restaurant and braai area as well.

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

My partner and I came here whilst we were at the Rhino and Lion Park and I am glad we also did the wondercave. The tour of the cave goes for about 20-30 minutes and is really interesting. On its own I probably wouldnt have done this as its not really out "thing" but as an added bonus/extra to the park, it's really worth a visit. The guide was very knowledgable and seemed to be quite passionate about everything he was explaining to us.
