The Wonder Caves are a private cave system on land adjacent to the Rhino & Lion Reserve in the Craddle of Humankind. It is worth doing as part of your visit to the Rhino & Lion Reserve as you can get a combined discounted ticket. Otherwise it is a long way to come just to look at some caves. The... More

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.

Wondercave is in the Lion and Rhino park. There is a tour every hour on the hour provides info about this interesting cave with beautiful limestone formations. 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...

It is a very nice visit to do. It is close to the city. If you like archeology and history you are doing the right visit.

World heritage site and within easy reach of Lanseria airport. Informative and beautiful. A bit of a workout getting up and down the 80+ steps at a 45 degree angle but worth it!

The tour guides are knowledgeable and happy to answer all your questions. Be warned that entering and exiting the caves requires climbing many stairs, but this should be easy... More
