So informative touring these caves. Make sure you wear comfortable, that you would use for sport. My wife and I went down with our parents in their 70s - challenging, but they made it - my dad is a history buff so he loved it.

Excellent,knowlegable young guide who was obviously passionate about her job and the caves are well worth the visit. Our guide coped very well with a very young, noisy child. Perhaps management should reconsider the lower age limit and discourage under 5's into the caves.

Good tour into the caves, knowledgeable and nice tour guide. You will go 60m down into the cool caves, about 17C down there. Admire the formations, one that looks like an elephant. Be prepared to crouch down and walk 200 stairs back up. Worth seeing....More

The Sterkfontein Caves are interesting for the discoveries of human fossils over time and thus helping us to understand the concept of our evolution. However, there are no fossils preserved or kept inside the caves at present. The guide only points out to the spots...More

Wonderful and interesting. There are a lot of steps going down but it is more challenging going up with narrow areas in the cave. The cave is massive. We had a demonstration of how pure the water was. A lot of children were there and...More

.... but a little boring. The stalactites have been chopped off for access so renders the inside of these caves pretty ordinary if you can call limestone and dolomite ordinary. Bigger than the Wonder caves but not as 'architecturally' interesting. Pathways are rubber mat coated...More
