“Wonder why it is a wonder?”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

This is an ok attraction, but hardly a wonder. The entrance is a steep 85 steps, closely arranged and descending at a 45 degree angle, so be careful, going down and gather your strength to go back up. It is a small cave and for a first cave venture you will not be disappointed, but if you have been to any cave in the US or Europe, then don't get excited.

“must visit”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

It certainly lives up to its name. Its something that you have to do.and is for all ages. Very affordable and the plus is that we
were fortunate to see six different animals on the way to the cave.
Wonder cave will compete with Cango caves and Sudwala caves

“Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

Wonderful cave to visit while at the Rhino and Lion park.

Initially the steep walk down the stairs to get to the lift was a bit daring, after which I throughly enjoyed the cave. The constant 16 degrees Celsius is very refreshing during the hot summer months.

Tour lasts about an hour.

“Great to do while you are at the Lion Park”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

This was part of an all day tour we did with a private driver. There are quite a few steps on a 45 degree angle and then a lift takes you the rest of the way. It is apparently the 3 rd largest on in SA or so our lovely Scottish guide told us. It was just the 3 of us that went down with her so it was like a private tour. Amazing natural formations and really interesting commentary. Lighting was not great however and as I had a dodgey leg I was quite nervous the whole time. Well worth a visit.

“Wondercave within Rhino and Lion Park”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

If visiting the amazing Rhino and Lion Park (better than Lion Park) you must stop and go to the wondercaves. Ticket available at entrance.
