The Cango Caves lie about 30 km north of Oudtshoorn. The Cango Caves were first discovered in 1780 by Jacobus Van Zyl. With a little light entered the chamber for the first time. It took years for all the rooms were discovered.

The standard tour lasts approximately one hour. This standard tour goes through the first five chambers of the Cango Caves. The Adventure Tour takes one and a half hour and it goes through a larger share of the Cango Caves. The Adventure Tour does mean that you must climb through narrow passages. Sandra is soon nervous in small spaces, so we decide to do the standard tour of the Cango Caves.

The Cango Caves are considered one of the most beautiful caves in the world. There are still new rooms to be discovered in the cave. There are about 26 rooms in the Cango Caves. And the total length of the cave is about 5 km.

The standard tour goes through the first five chambers of the Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn in South Africa. The first room is very large. Once the guide has told his story, he turns on the light. Only then we can see how big the first room is of the Cango Caves. We continue to the second special room where we see stalagmites and stalactites. We see and organ formations with a little imagination you can see everything in the cave formations. The guide has a vivid imagination. We walk through the other rooms on to the fifth room. The fifth room is the end of the standard tour of the Cango Caves. And we go back to the entrance. We pay the parking attendant and go to our accommodation for today. The Cango Caves are fun, but if you have been many times in caves, can be disappointing.
