It's fairly interesting but it's definitely not a full days outing, at best it's an hour. Its very expensive for what you get however if you're camping at the attached campsite it's only an additional $2 which is worth spending to see it. Didn't do the diving in the hole but can't imagine it to be vaguely worth the expense!... More

It was a 2 hour drive from Harare to get there as a few police checks on the way. Not really costly to get in and if it was your first time then they supplied a guard. The walk down to each of the caves was good but it was on the way back up that you realised how thin... More

The province's most popular feature. A national monument kept by National Parks. Retired at the National Parks Caves Motel in the same lot. A remarkable improvement on the hotel and camping grounds in the last 2 years.

Recommend a stop on the way to or from Kariba. Its to the north of Chinhoyi and not well sign posted so you may pass the hotel before you realise you have gone too far. Excellent picnic facilities, clean neat and you can buy lunch from stall. The caves are beautiful, specially the water features. Well worth 1-2 hour stop... More

We visited the caves on our way from Kariba to Harare. They are stunning. Kids were very impressed. However, I would not drive from Harare just to see them. Though they are very interestinh and a must see if you are already driving by them.
