Owner description: The Sudwala Caves is the oldest known caves in the world and lie in the Drakensberg escarpment.Regular guided tours take you 600 meters in and 150 meters underground. Tours leave every 10 min (approx) and take about 30 minutes.The caves have some amazing formations including stalactites, stalagmites, flow stones and pre cambrian fossils. The most famous formation is the Screaming Monster. This is actually a stalactite that has joined with a stalagmite and has formed a column that is 200 million years old.

“Very interesting attraction”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Sudwala caves over Christmas. We had an humourous guide who made it fun as well as interesting. Definitely well worth the trip.

“Interesting visit to Sudwala caves”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Tour was interesting and the tour guide was really funny. I liked that it was around half an hour long so we could catch other attractions on the same day.
