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.

All tours are offered in English but Afrikaans, German, French and other language options may be available (please check language availability when making reservations).
