The single-chamber Wonder Cave, deep under the Witwatersrand, is situated in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, one of the world’s richest hominid fossil sites. The cave, which has been open to the public since 1991, is home to fossils of rodents, frogs, lizards and birds, and beautiful rock formations.
The caves are believed to be well over 2.2 million years old!

After an initial 90-step descent, visitors take an elevator down to the chamber of the 60m deep cave. Despite damage from mining lime in the past, the 125m-long, 154m-wide natural wonder has spectacular cave formations. Features include rimstone pools, mushroom, straw and popcorn formations, “Madonnas”, cave pearls, and stalactites and stalagmites up to 15m in height, most of which are still growing. The cave has its own colony of bats.

The cave has stalactite and stalagmite formations up to 15 metres high, a high percentage of which are still growing. The deep cave is accessible to visitors by elevator and is located within the Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve which is in the Cradle of Humankind.
