Great - worth a visit.
It's quite warn down there, so don't wear too much heavy clothing.

If you're staying in Oudtshoorn, stop at Buffelsdrift game lodge for lunch on the way back - it's lovely.

A must visit when one is in South Africa.
We had a great lady guide who sang to give us a chance to experience how the sound travels down in the caves. Amazing.
Fantastic place and planning to come back there one day to do an adventure trail.
