Cango Caves, Oudtshoorn Reviews
I did the tour many many years ago and returned to share the experience with my children.. They loved the Adventure tour and enjoyed the caving.. My husband and I joined them and didn't love the experience.. Yes it was fun to climb and slither along BUT my family never had the same dramatic experience as I had years ago...there is no music..and the tour was rushed and lacked information and learning.. I realised they have split the heritage info tour up and separated the "fun" aspect as two separate tours..but they have lost the ZING... Disappointed
This is a must see tourist attraction! Majestic and breath taking around every corner. Well planned tourist spot with Resturant and gift shop as well as a mini museum. Well worth the drive and admittance fee.
The adventure tour was great. R160 per person is a fair price for this event. The guide was funny and very friendly! We liked it a lot to see the caves. It's nothing for bigger people because you have to climb up 4 meters in a small hole, walk in 50cm high, very small parts in there. But at the entrance you can find a wall to try if you fit in the holes. Don't worry ;)
My 3rd trip here and learn something new each time. The Caves and its history itself is 5 stars. Tourists should please be mindful of other tourists wanting to hear what the guides are sharing ... dont join the tour if not interested in the history.
Beautiful large cave with quite spectacular formations. It is very developed with walkways and paths, easy access for anyone, but unfortunately some formations were sacrificed for this luxury. The main problem was the tour itself, very focused on making money, they packed a extremely large group and we spent at least half our time waiting for people to pass from on room to another... the prohibition of tripod but allowing flash indiscriminately also was not appreciated.
