Van Zyl's Hall is dominated by the giant Organ Pipes, a
spectacular dripstone/flowstone combination. Your eyes are
drawn to a tall, slender stalagmite which rises nearly 10
metres towards the ceiling - Cleopatra's Needle. Still
active and growing, the Needle is estimated to be in excess
of 150 000 years old.
Near the base of the staircase stands an impressive formation
known as The Pulpit of a Great Cathedral, replete with angel's
wings, sculptured by nature's own chisel. At the base of this
formation imaginative eyes may make out the shape of The
Kneeling Camel, against the side of which nature's artist
has left an unusual stain known as The Moses Figure. It
represents the biblical Moses, dressed in a flowing, brown
robe, his arms outstretched in blessing.
