Team Adventure Caving
Did you know?
Spelunking is a term used for caving in many parts of the world.
Caving is becoming a very popular team-building activity and the caves in Oudtshoorn are the perfect venue for such an exercise. A scenic road trip takes you to this part of the Western Cape, where adventures in the dark await those who are brave enough.
TBI Adventures, based in Oudtshoorn, offer a variety of adventure and team-building packages, including team adventure caving.
Groups of between 2 and 10 people can be accommodated per session. The caving experience will last between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the ability of those in the group.
'The caves that we take people into are on private land and are not open to the public,' explains Johan Uys of TBI Adventures. 'That, of course, makes it all the more special. These are limestone caves similar to the Cango Caves, but much smaller and with fantastic, delicate formations that are untouched and unspoiled.'
'This is real caving with helmets, overalls and headlamps,' he adds, 'and it involves a lot of crawling through narrow spaces and sometimes through a bit of water as well. Cavers will see stalactites, stalagmites and the rare helictites. This is real adventure stuff and a trip with memories that will last a long time.'
If you wish to extend your time with TBI Adventures, you can add quad biking and abseiling to your itinerary. The abseiling option offers adventurers up to 3 descents down a 40-metre cliff face, while there are 2 different routes to choose from for those who wish to try out the 160cc quad bikes.
The famous Cango Caves are also located near Oudtshoorn. Here travellers can experience a more sedate cave tour.
