Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 3 hour caving experience, approximately 2 hours under ground
  • Experienced guides
  • All equipment provided including helmets and torches
  • Morning sessions include a wine tasting experience and the option to add a winery lunch

This is an adventure caving tour, not a boring walk in and walk out tour. You will navigate your way through the cave system, getting muddy and wet and having the time of your life. No experience is required to explore the caves that are suitable for all levels of experience.

Once you’re in the cave you will find phosphorous ‘glow’ worms, cave crickets and other cave dwelling critters. For those afraid of spiders, don’t worry there are no spiders in the cave (there’s nothing there for them to eat). Besides, you will be too busy exploring different sections of the amazing granite system.

Participants are given a safety talk and a description of the unusual granite boulder cave formation, before exploring various parts of the cave system.
