There are some lekker trails to follow with a bike but be aware that this is a heritage site managed by Nature Conservation. So take it easy

The old Limestone mine is great for urban exloring and photography

There is also a 150m long tunnel carved through the rock.
Enter if you don't mind utter darkness and bats

The best time to go is during March and April. Then it will be a little cooler and the waterfall will be switched on

The excavation site where they found the skull of the Taung Child is somewhat facinating

I would recommend this place for a future Wild Dog Bash but I'm uncertain if one may overnight. If there is any interest I will try to find out

WOW, this looks like a great place, only 500km from Pretoria. I reckon lekker for a one-nighter.

Thanks !!

Shit, was about to ask how far it is from CT.

A bit far for me it seems.

A two - nighter would be great so we can have a whole day of exploring.
