In The Area: Cultural Heritage site

With spectacular views overlooking a 500m drop into Swaziland from the Lebombo Mountains, the first know inhabitants of the area took residence in the Border Cave some 200 000 years ago. These caves are an archaeological gem as they are one of the few places in the world with a continuous stratigraphic record which provides some of the oldest evidence of human evolution in Africa.

There is an interpretive centre sharing the story of prehistoric life at the cave.

For a small guiding fee, you can walk to the cave (09h00 – 16h00), however it is preferable to discover the history and geology of the area with Digs Pascoe, our local historian.
