Cango Caves, Oudtshoorn Reviews

  • Such a unique and AWESOME experience! Don’t miss this if you’re in the area. Opt for the Adventure Tour because you get to do the more fun things! We got to climb and crawl through small openings and pathways. We got lucky to be in a small and fit group. Wear good shoes and light clothing. It gets pretty hot and humid in there, even if it’s cold outside. This is NOT for people that are on the bigger side, because you might get stuck in the small openings... And then it’s just rough for everyone.

  • Definitely worth the visit! The tour guide was very friendly and told us a lot of interesting facts about the cave and its history. I would definitely recommend the adventures tour. The small tunnels you have to go through aren't that difficult to get through and it all seems harder then it is!

  • An excellent and very memorable outing. The adventure tour is fun but not for the claustrophobic! Our kids (7 and 8) managed found some parts a bit tricky but they enjoyed it none the less.

  • A great place to visit. When you're in the Garden Route, it's a must go. There's two options and the smallest one is good enough to know the caves without so much effort. There's a coffee shop and restaurant in the place.

  • Did the adventure tour which takes you deeper into the caves. Johnny, our guide has a great sense of humour. Always busy so book in advance so you're not disappointed
