“Mindblowing”
Reviewed October 31, 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”
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”
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.
