Here we visit the Cango Caves to go on either an adventure or standard tour through some very large chambers with spectacular limestone formations that are millions of years old. If you chose the adventure tour be prepared to start squeezing through some very tight spaces.

If there is time we make a stop at a working ostrich farm to find out more about these fascinating birds.
