Just a few kilometers from Oudtshoorn, in the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the underground treasure of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. The Cango Caves is a cultural and natural landmark in South Africa, dating back 20 million years ago. Visit this ancient African cave system located just a short distance from the spectacular Swartberg mountains and behold one of the great Natural Wonders of The World.
Take the plunge and sign up for the Cango Caves Adventure Tour. You’ll enter a mysterious and strangely beautiful underground world of fascinating rock formations, cellar-like chambers and low passageways. See attractions like Cleopatra’s Needle, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Madonna and Child, then tackle the 200 steps of Jacob’s Ladder to the Grand Hall before passing through Lot’s Chamber where natural rock formations mimic the biblical Lot and his wife, who were turned into pillars of salt. The names of attractions along the route give a clue as to what lies in store, from Lumbago Alley, to the Crystal Palace and King Solomon’s Mines, be prepared to crawl, duck and squeeze your way through a fascinating subterranean world and have an epic adventure.
