The Wonder Cave at Muldersdrift is part of the breath-taking, sometimes-haunting Cradle of Humankind (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). This vast cave, with an area of some 46 000 square metres and a length of 125 metres, is believed to be 2.2 million years old. As part of the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve, the Wonder Cave is accessible to visitors from all over the world that want to experience its prehistoric beauty and drama.

There is a lift that descends into the cave for the majority of visitors. However, for those that want to see and be part of the adventure of ancient history, there is also the option to abseil into its depths. After abseilers drop 18 metres from the elevator platform, they will be taken on a fascinating guided tour of the caves. On this tour, they will see the wonders of the rim stone pools, the stalactites and stalagmites (some of which are about 15 metres high), and other incredible rock formations.

First-timers and experienced sportsmen can be part of the abseiling excursion, as the staff members are well trained and ready to provide all of the help and advice necessary. Those wanting to abseil need to be 9 years or older and just about any fitness level. Younger children may be accommodated, depending on the circumstances (please contact us ahead of time to discuss this). The harnesses are adjustable, and generally fit those wearing a clothing size of up to about 44 (UK).

Descending into the caves, surrounded by the power and scale of nature in its rawest form, is a humbling and memorable experience. The photo opportunities are countless and nothing short of breath-taking.

The on-site restaurant is great for a comforting cappuccino or a welcome snack after one of South Africa’s most exciting experiences in the North West Province.
