Cango Caves, Oudtshoorn Reviews

  • This natural wonder is well worth going out of your way to visit. I did visit them many years ago as well, when they had coloured lights to highlight the formations. Now the lights are all white (apparently because people want things more natural). I think alternating the two options would give the best experience to everyone.

  • Kids loved it and still talking about it months later. Knowledgeable guide and entertaining. Beautiful scenes. Very professional staff and eager to help answer questions or point you in the right direction. Great exhibits too.

  • This was a wonderful experience. We were lucky to have a good singer demonstrating the excellent acoustics. . Some other tours were not so lucky . Guides were well spoken. Several languages offered. Lighting very good. Excellent photo opportunities.

  • The Cango Caves are about 30km outside Oudtshoorn, but we'll worth a trip. However, the only tour worth taking is the adventure tour. Take clothes that can get a bit sweaty or dirty and fit tightly. Closed shoes are best. You'll have a fabulous experience and fit into spaces you never thought you could.

  • Our tour guide was entertaining and the caves are quite spectacular. We did the Heritage Tour, which is easier and shorted than the Adventure Tour. I would recommend it, as it was interesting and about the right length for us. Photos don't capture the scale and beauty of some areas. There is a gift shop and cafe in the main building, as well as plenty of parking. Booking in advance is definitely recommended.
