The Wondercaves can be found within the Lion and Rhino Park. It's well-worth visiting both the park and the caves. The tour-guide was informative and entertaining and the site is well preserved and kept.

Hi Karen, I would say 5-6 years recommended and older, but young children who are interested can also go. The entrance is down some steep stairs and the floor in the cave may be uneven or wet and there are bats. So the... More
