Day 2

Cango Caves

At the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations. Upon entering the entrance chamber one is immediately conscious of the increased humidity and pleasantly warm temperature. A faint musty odour may point to the presence of a small colony of bats which still make the cave their home. You catch your breath as the first view of VAN ZYL'S HALL. Leaving Van Zyl's Hall through a wide passageway, you enter the spectacular BOTHA'S HALL, with its decorative side-chamber, The Throne Room. Leaving the Throne Room and Botha's Hall, you ascend a staircase, pass a hollowed out stalagmite known as The Pulpit, then proceed through a narrow passageway into the RAINBOW CHAMBER. Next, a flight of steps leads into the BRIDAL CHAMBER with its fourteen-post bridal bed. Fairyland, the next chamber, provides fantasy for the younger generation. Colored lights illuminate the Fairy Queen's Palace. To end the tour you arrive at The Drum Room, which 500 meters from the entrance, provides the first major turn-back point on HERITAGE TOUR.

Duration1 Hour

Safari Ostrich Farm

Guests will meet super friendly female ostrich "Betsie" to begin the tour. Following that you will be able to get an ostrich massage, feed the animals or even stand on eggs (Ultimate weight test).
