About Explore the Cango Caves

Just outside Oudshoorn in the Karoo, the Cango Caves are a series of dripstone caverns that open into vast halls of towering stalagmite formations with names like ‘the bridal couple’, ‘glass flower fantasy’, ‘weird cango candle’ and ‘the hanging shawl’.

Not all of the caves are open to the public - there is more than one section to the caves that took millions of years to form one of the world’s great natural wonders - but the main sections are available for amazing exploratory subterranean walks that include fumbling around on all fours in an effort to see all that is viewable.

To view various day trip options and additional information about the caves see Cango Caves. Facilities at the Cango Caves includes a Restaurant, Curio Shop and an Interpretive Centre, scientifically designed to explain the Caves, and particularly their geology and history, in great detail.
