Go batty in Montagu

The Montagu cave (also called the Guano Cave) consists of a large, high chamber at the back of which is an opening to a smaller and longer tunnel-like cave once filled with bat guano. In the 1890s the guano was emptied out. Under the guano were found two important items a bored stone and a stick of olive wood with a rounded head at one end. 

In 1964 an American archaeologist, Charles Keller, excavated and dynamited a third of the main chamber of the cave and found, buried among ash and red sand, several thousand artifacts shaped like spear-heads. His conclusion: that the cave was a factory site in which, some 20 000 to 50 000 years ago, hand-axes and other tools were made.

With a variety of accommodation options ranging from our campsite through to our quaint Stone Cottage, we ensure a memorable stay at the foot of the Langeberg mountain in the Klein Karoo. 

We have so much to do and see, why not stay a little longer. From horse riding, hiking, swimming in our heated rock pools, to our scenic tractor trip which will take you into the mountain to experience the cave.
