Discover the earliest forms of art and technology
The famous Cango Caves 29km from Oudtshoorn have attracted visitors for many decades. Visitors can choose between easier Heritage Tours, or more challenging Adventure Tours.
Recent archeological finds have shown that humans lived and sheltered in the caves for at least 80 000 years. A beautiful exhibition on the first floor of the interpretation centre explains how humans evolved from the origin of times to today. It describes the significance of the archaeological sites in the area and illustrates some of the powerful rock art found nearby.
It was originally thought that the caves extended for only about a kilometre, but new evidence shows that they extend for well over 5km.
