Amazing natural wonder

A nice outing for the weekend, especially for the nature buffs. A short tour underground with a little bit of history. The tour guys are quite entertaining and make the trip fun.

Stunning natural beauty. A knowledgeable tour guide with so much insight. A great one hour tour of the cave that can be followed with a drive through the nature reserve to spot the wild life.

this is a cave just under the earth's fault line which runs next to the rhino and lions park. It is definitely worth visit if in the park. The stalagmites / stalactites are beautiful, although a lot of the limestone was taken out by miners at the beginning of previous century.

The caves are huge and you walk down a long staircase into a deep crevice and then into the enormous hall of spectacular stalactites and stalagmites, with an old mine lift - which makes quite a dramatic...

Took a tour with Ellios travel! not so much to see. Just caves, very ....VERY DEEP. You have walk down through a very narrow scalator, and then take an elevator to go even deeper. VERY tiring...for me! Very dark inside.

Our guide, Joseph, was wonderful with the guests, especially kids, and provided interesting information. It is one of the best and easiest caves to see rock formations. There was no water in the...
