In order to conserve and preserve the Cango Caves, we have instituted a limited amount of visitors per touring option. Bookings are essential to guarantee your place.

Welcome to the Cango Caves

29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lie 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.

Tour Information

Cango Caves is the only show cave in Africa which offers a choice of Heritage (easy) or Adventure Tours. All tours are lead by experienced, knowledgeable and accredited Caves Guides. All tours are offered in English but Afrikaans, German, French and other language options may be available (please check language availability when making reservations).

Due to a recent increase in visitors,
it is ESSENTIAL to book either tour in advance

Please note that every tour carries a (scientific)
restriction in terms of visitors and by booking, you
are not only making it comfortable for yourself, but
also aiding us directly with our conservation effort
of this non-renewable resource.
