We had an awesome 10th birthday party adventure. Everything was so well organized and professional. Our guide was fantastic. I had a few very scared boys on my hands at one point who were convinced we would never come out of the cave alive, and Gustav managed to get them all calmed down and through the rest of the cave without incident. Of course afterwards everyone was very brave!!
Wild Cave Adventures runs a great operation, and I would recommend it to anyone.

We had such an amazing time as a family in Bat Cave. Neil, our guide, was so patient and great with the kids. He mentored my 11 year old through some fears. And I know that pep talk will stay with my son for a long time

I cannot even put into words just how blown away we are!
When we wanted to do something different for the kids (our daughter aged 9 and son aged 11) , we could never have dreamed just how amazing it would turn out to be.
We got such great feedback from all the moms and dads of their friends. They all truly had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
And we are still being taught about everything they have learned about the caves and the bats- the educational part of it was an added bonus!
Such friendly, knowledgeable guides which really just added to the experience for the little ones.
As an added bonus, the moms and dads loved logging on to see the free photos that the guides took on the adventure!

The Wild Cave Adventures guides were fantastic with our rowdy over-excited bunch of kids under 10 years old. They were professional, knowledgeable and patient. Our caving was a wonderful birthday outing that I would highly recommend.

Thanks to the Wild Cave Adventures team, this group of thirteen year old boys had so much fun and it seems we topped the party scale.. so the boys were saying on our way home! Really looking forward to going to www.wildcaves.co.za and seeing the photos the guides took on the trip.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to Wild Cave Adventures and especially the guides - Davie and Patricia - for another excellent, exciting adventure in Bat Cave for Harriet’s 9th Birthday. All of the children had a fantastic experience - with the right combination of a little fear (but the knowledge you are safe), some physical challenge, lots of fun and the feeling of elation of what you have achieved and experienced at the end!

These kids, all 12 to 13 years old, had a ball and cannot wait to book the next trip!! Thanks to the Wild Cave team and for the guide Patricia who put up with these busy little rascals, they had a blast.
The photos, that the guide took on the trip and put up on the www.wildcaves.co.za website at no extra cost, are stunning!!! Thank you so much.....
According to my son this was the best birthday ever!

Thanks so much for the pictures the guide took in the cave, they are wonderful, and such good quality. I can let all the parents know that they can go and download the photos they want off your website!
They children loved it – all of them – on the way home we got the most amazing looks from people on the road. We had two cars, one with the big boys and in mine were the 3 little ones – the big boys began waving to all and sundry on the way home and the response was wonderful – needless to say the little ones joined in on the fun. All the children had a great time and we were very pleased with what we got out of it too. Thank you so much, we are so happy we chose to come to Wild Cave Adventures and experience it. Some Moms sms’d that night saying that their child cannot stop talking about the event and the learning etc. But really it was fantastic – we are so happy and grateful.

Thanks to the team at Wild Cave Adventures for making my son’s birthday such an awesome experience! Young and old were blown away by the amazing time we had – thank you for creating a spectacular memory for each one of us!
I can tell you one thing, we’re already planning for a next trip down the cave – it’s an experience that challenges you just enough to feel somewhat out of your comfort zone but ends up making you feel you can conquer the world!

My daughter visited Bat Cave last year and enjoyed it so much, she wanted to do it again for her birthday! We had a BLAST on Saturday and the children in her class are still talking about it. The kids that could not come, are jealous...

I won this trip in a jozikids competition and my son celebrated his 17th birhday with Wild Cave Adventures. What awesome photos were taken by Frederik of these teenagers having a blast! At first I thought they could be a little too old for this but they were actually the perfect age! They enjoyed it soo much and are now inspired to do more adventure activities. More caving, abseiling and even think about parachuting since they went on the Bat Cave trip! They babbled about their experience for hours after they came out and said it was the best party ever.
The knowledge they gained during this party is priceless and the boys said Frederik, their guide, knew a great deal about caving and they could see he has ample experience.

We brought through a group of teenagers to experience a Bat Cave twilight party that met at 5pm and was done by 8pm when they came out to a starry sky and pizza delivery. Perfect weather this time of year!
The kids had an awesome time and they all want to come back for more!
A special word of thanks to Frederik, the guide who took them through. The kids loved his humor and enthusiasm.

The kids enjoyed it so much. Some wanted to do it the next day again. The one girl didn't want to wash her face. He mom finally convinced her the Sunday that it time to wash the mud off. Some even said it was their best party ever!!
We all had a great day.

Both the kids and the parents had a fabulous time on Sunday for Otsile's 9th birthday. They say the whole experience was like something they have never experienced before. The kids in particular, say the trip down into the cave was "awesome" in their words. They say it was the best party ever and their parents are echoing the same thing. They wanted to know how I found out about your services and they will definitely be returning for more adventure. They really can't stop talking about their wonderful time at Bat Cave. The tour guides were also very friendly and knew what they were doing. Thank you for the interesting experience.

We loved our pics taken by the guide on the trip, though we do not usually get that dirty at parties!
The 15 year old boys thoroughly enjoyed the experience and still cannot stop talking about it. One of the boys phoned and texted 3 times to thank us for inviting him to the party and then insisted the next day that his mom must also thank me! It was a huge success and we already recommended it to quite a few other people. Even the girls going along could not stop blabbering about the experience!
Wild Cave Adventures truly has something going there!
Ps. The water for hand washing afterwards was SO WELCOME !!!!!!

The abseiling and caving with Wild Cave Adventures was an amazing place for an adventure party. The kids had so much fun but more importantly my 11 year old daughter LOVED every minute of it!! I will definitely be recommending this as a party idea :-) They are super organised and it made the day all that much better.

The kids really had fun and the party was a winner, once again. This was our third birthday party at Wild Caves, and I am sure we will be back again. The rope ladder is probably the part the kids fear most, but their sense of achievement makes up for that, when they manage to reach the top. It was again by far, "The coolest party they had ever been to", which was the comment I got at all three parties we have celebrated with you over years.

The 11 year old kids (and the three adults) had a fantastic time. It was a perfect party for boys their age and they all had a thoroughly good time! The tour through the caves was well organised and I would definitely recommend it to other parents. There were a few boys who mentioned that they’d definitely like to have their party there!

We all had a wonderful adventure at the caves. This was certainly one of the best experiences the boys have ever had!
There was definitely enough exhilarating parts in the cave for an adventurous 11 year old!
Our guide was wonderful with the kids and his knowledge was very informative.

What an awesome cave tour. I was expecting something good for the scouts, but was blown away by what we got!!!I can’t believe we paid what we did for that ADVENTURE!
The kids,aged 9-16, had a great time, and on the way home they were discussing who they were going to “tease” for not being there. My son insists that his next birthday party will include one of these tours, and after speaking to our district commissioner we are seriously considering a team building exercise with our scouters!
The tour was entertaining, challenging and very informative!
Neil was really good with the way he handled the kids. There was no babying, but if his help was really needed he was there. One of the big problems we have in scouts today is the babying of kids. From my point of view kids will only grow if they are challenged, and if you can challenge them in a way that they FEEL CHALLENGED, BUT SAFE then you have something unique! And you have it!!!
But enough about the kids. We had two adults in our party, and I think it is fair to say that the biggest freak outs were from the two adults. Gordon struggled on the ladder, while I really struggled with the small spaces. In both cases Neil was awesome, and Gordon and I both left that cave feeling like winners for having pushed through. When I felt I couldn’t get through a really tight spot Neil came back to fetch me and was quick to tell me how he also struggled in the beginning and talk me through the small spaces.
I copied the photos taken on your website to our group Facebook page, and the parents of the kids that were there were so amazed by the photos of their kids. I am sure those photos will be shown around school very proudly!
Once again, thanks for a great afternoon. It wasn’t only entertaining, but informative and encouraged growth too!
You guys ROCK!!!

Thank you sooo much for Saturday. The boys had a ball and in the car home, the ones that were with me said it was the best party they have ever been to!!
Some of these 8 year olds had never been in a cave before. Stuart, the guide, was absolutely amazing, especially with those ones that were a bit scared. Even my husband enjoyed himself and found it to be very informative.
Thnaks to the team for being so organised!

The kids had a BLAST!!! I have never heard so many giggles in my life! I have to compliment the staff, to handle eight 13-year old girls and two 9-year old boys cannot be easy, but from the word GO with the abseiling into the cave they were great. Two girls were slightly scared to enter but they were put to ease by the guides.
Once in the caves the fun started and the guides kept it very informative with lots of fun! Some spaces were tight (not sure how I got through them) and in the middle of it all we had one girl that thought it a bit much. Once again the guides stepped to the plate and got everybody relaxed and ready to go on!
Thanx for the face painting with real cave mud – not sure how long it will take for my pool to be clear again!!!
A real adventure, thank you!

It was an amazing day. Danielle loved her 13th birthday and caving is now at the top of her list of things to do again. All of her friends were still talking about their adventure on Monday at school and shared the “scary” parts to other friends that did not attend. Even the Dad’s had fun although some of the crawl spaces were a very tight fit – the cave must have shrunk! it was also conversation piece for a few days where they re-lived their experience, I hear the ladder was very scary for the Dad’s. Even the time of day was perfect with a sunset picnic after the caving.
It is difficult to find venues that are different, adventurous and good clean fun which gets the kids outside in the fresh air.....this was perfect.
Thank you again for hosting us.

What an exciting birthday party Thomas had. From the minute the kids got dressed in their overalls with torch and hard hat!! Energy and excitement was up. Abseiling down into the cave was so much fun for boys. I can't explain what a fab time we had.It was exciting exhilarating and to top it off, educational.
Needless to say- I'll be back with my younger son's Bday in sept.
To top it all, we got to see all the photographs from our trip, put up on the website for us to download when we got home!

Thank you so much for party that was held last week for my thirteen year old son Jason.The kids loved it and cannot stop talking about it and the fathers that went down raved about it.
The team that put it all together were awesome -well done to them.
The team of guides took photos of the kids abseiling down into the cave and on the trip underground and the real highlight was getting to see the
photographs that were put up on the website afterwards!
