  1. Thank you Megan. We have subsequently booked for 3 nights (2 to 5 March) and will be paying the deposit before the due date.

  2. Hi, could you please let me know if these dates and accomodation preferences are available for booking, price for the 2 night stay and any road condition issues there might be when travelling from Johannesburg?

    Regards,
    Jose Pinel

    1. Hi Jose
      Our daily rate in standard accommodation is R1500 per adult sharing per night. This includes all meals, teas and guided morning hikes. Two nights for two will cost R3000 in a standard room. Please email Reservations; info@cavern.co.za to check availability and to book.
      The roads from JHB are in good condition with a short section near where the road has a few potholes. We are hoping these will be attended to soon.
      Best wishes,
      Megan
