Tell us in the comment section below and send us pics to firstname.lastname@example.org Cape Town Caving, various locations Explore the mysterious caves and caverns of the Western Cape with the Cape Peninsula Speleological Society. They hold regular cave exploration meets on the first Sunday of each month and occasionally over weekends, exploring existing caves, searching for undiscovered ones and learning new techniques. Caving is open to any reasonably fit person who does not mind getting dirty – and sometimes wet and muddy – but is looking for a different challenge in an environment not known to many people. It is, however, not recommended to anyone who suffers from claustrophobia.
