Known to man since the Stone Age the Cango Caves have been a popular tourist spot since the 1800’s.
South Africa’s oldest tourist attraction was also the first to be environmentally protected and the first to employ Guides (the first one served for 43 years!).
However, environmental laws did not stop early travellers from engraving their names in the walls or taking home pieces of the delicate stalactites and stalagmites for souvenirs.
Extending for over 5kms into the hillside the Cango Caves consists of 2 main sections aptly named Cango 1 and 2 although Cango 1 is the only section open to the public.
A guided tour is a must as the mysteries and stories surrounding the Caves are not as appreciated when read from a book - but the glory of the huge stalactites and stalagmites stretching towards each other and the fantastic acoustics defy any description.

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
