Oudtshoorn, 19 October 2016 – Cango Caves have re-opened this morning with the first tour commencing at 09:00 as staff turned up to guide tours.
Several bus groups and individual tourists from as far as Israel have yesterday been turned away as the news of the tremor emerged. Some of the workers were still in shock and consequently withheld their services concerned about their safety. The Cango Caves were then closed and no tour could be continued.
This morning, it is business as usual at the Cango Caves. Management is encouraging tourists to visit the Caves since tours have been running smoothly as normal.
The tremor which hit Oudtshoorn and surrounding areas was measured at 3.4 on the Richter scale and is calculated at 6km into the ground.
Several inspections were conducted at the Cango Caves yesterday and no damages were found.Last published 19 October 2016
