History of the Bothongo Wonder Cave

The cave was discovered by Italian miners in 1898. They mined out approximately 15% from the formation and brought them to the surface. The formation consists of calcite which they placed in a self built oven for 2 week about 1100 degrees. This formed a powder which was taken by ox wagon to Pretoria & Johannesburg to make cement, toothpaste, use to extract gold and the like. Mining was stopped in 1902 due to the outbreak of war and low productivity. This is the 3rd largest chamber is South Africa, the largest being Cango Caves and second largest Sudwala Caves.


Bothongo Wonder Cave Entrance

The entrance to the cave is going down 87 stairs at a 45degrees angle dropping 22 meters below the surface. You will then go down an elevator with a drop of a further 18 meters into the cave.
