Cango Caves

This underground wonder world was discovered by a farmer in 1780 and has since become one of the most popular attractions in SA. The Cango Caves showcase a plethora of enchanting dripstones, including the Madonna and Child formation, which portrays Mary carrying her son, Jesus, in her arms.

You will find the caves approximately 30km outside Oudtshoorn in the Klein Karoo and they show be on every visitor’s to-do list! Once inside the caves, you will not only see the Madonna and Child, but many other formations, such as Cleopatra’s Needle which stands 9m tall, as well as the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which has been named after the well known tower in Italy.
