Wonder Cave – Cradle of Humankind – Kromdraai
Wonder Cave, Cradle of Humankind, Kromdraai
After an initial 90-step descent, visitors take an elevator down to the chamber of the 60m deep cave. Despite damage from lime mining, 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.
