Sudwala Caves

Sudwala Caves

The Sudwala caves are dominated by spectacular chambers, with a lofty corridor measuring 150 metres to its center. The caves were developed in such a way that they have become an attraction which can be visited and appreciated by the public.

The caves are part of the Malmani Dolomite Ridge, which is part of the Drakensberg escarpment, near Nelspruit in Mpumalanga. They are solutional caves which means they were formed by the natural acid in groundwater seeping through, and dissolving the rocks. This most often occurs when the rock is dolomite rock and/ or limestone.

At the Sudwala caves you can embark on an epic underground adventure that takes you 2000m into the heart of the caves. The crystal tour is a specialized tour full of adventure and starts at 9:30am for a duration of 4 hours.

To experience all the cave has to offer, the cave is open daily from 8:30am to 4:30pm.
