Well worth a visit just take hats and plenty of water. The cave painting are seperate to the main caves and we'll sort a stop. The Cave system is beautiful. I would have like to have known more about the rock formations and the signatures...More

This place is definitely off the beaten track - about 50km along a gravel track. We didn't have a 4x4 so it was slow going (~1hour plus) from the main road, but would be much faster in a 4x4. We stopped at Algeria forest station...More

A short (11km) drive from Sanddrif. Kids loved to explore. Cave painting was good although not really worth the trip by itself. Stunning views and rock formations. Definitely worth a visit if you are already at Cederberg vineyard.

good to see the caves still so well protected after a visit 49 years ago! It is a long (and sometimes tiresome) drive over dirt roads, but worth it. Keep a watch as to your location in the caves - its quite easy to get...More

An eerie and fascinating area where eroded sandstone formations provides one with exceptional photographic and exploration opportunities. An alien landscape in the heart of the Cederberg Wilderness area - highly recommended.

I'm a bit rusty on S A hisstory but on the walls of the caves are the signatures of various politicians who held secret meetings here in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Sadly some people have added their own graffiti. A short walk away...More
