Mpumalanga is the home of several caves where you can go Caving or Spelunking.
The biggest and most well known cave system is the amazing Sudwala Caves. In the early 1900’s, during the Second Boer War, Sudwala Caves were used to store ammunition. Legends also claim that the caves may be the hiding place of the famous Kruger Millions, the large freight of gold bullion that disappeared somewhere between Waterval Onder and Nelspruit. Some people are still hopeful that this treasure remains buried – and if you do find it and become rich and famous, please remember that you got the tip from Dirty Boots!
Today, visitors explore the chambers of the Sudwala Caves for the amazing stalagtites, stalagmites and flowstone formations. If you are adventurous, you can also join the Crystal Tour and take a journey into the bowels of the earth.
For something different, try Caving by candlelight in the depths of Sabie’s Caves. Get your Boots Dirty on this muddy crawl into tunnels and chambers.
