Welcome to the Cango Caves

29km from Oudtshoorn, 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.

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 guide may be available (please check guide 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.
