About Wondergat Diving

Wondergat is an outstanding cave diving spot near Mafikeng in the North West Province where you can reach depths of up to 70 meters (only safe at this depth for advanced and technical divers) depending on the season.

This natural dolomite sinkhole is a popular spot to gain some deep diving experience. Although there is not a lot of fish life here besides the Southern Mouth brooder and the Sharptooth Barbell which can often be seen, the walls of the caves are fascinating and filled with magnificent formations. Before diving here you will need to have a Cave 1 qualification and it is advisable to dive here with someone who knows the site and has dived here before (Gecko Divers come highly recommended. Telephone number supplied above).

An underwater torch is necessary as the cave is dark, although guide ropes are around to assist your dive, this will help you navigate your way through the caves more easily. There is about five to ten meters of visibility depending on the amount of algae and the temperatures are usually between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius. Donít worry if your air or nitrox is running low, there is a filling station on site.
