Sudwala Caving Trip

<?xml:namespace prefix = o />Come caving with us to the back of the Sudwala Caves, the trip into the cave will be done on the saturday, approx. 7 hours in the cave. 


The Sudwala Caves are the oldest known caves in the world. These incredible caverns lie in the Drakensberg escarpment which separates the Highveld from the lowlands of Mpumalanga. The caves are situated in Pre-cumbrian dolomite rocks of the Malmani Group, formed over a period of some 3000 million years, capturing in stone a time when the area was covered by warm shallow in-land seas. These are amongst the second oldest known sedimentary rocks on the earth, and represented in the cave are fossils of the first oxygen producing plants on the earth, Collenia.
