We went to the Serkfontein Caves today and they were really nice! The caves were formed by natural erosion and are made up of limestone. Its was amazing to see a lake, still in the middle of the entire cave, 3 meters deep and 70 meters wide. it was very hard to see even if there was a hand right up against my nose! We saw a few bats sleeping up in a small crack, and was afraid that they might wake up! Then we entered a HUGE chamber, so open and extremely wide. It amazed me to see that nature could have done all this on its own.

The Serkfontein Caves are one of the most fossil-filled caves in South Africa. Little Foot, literally a fully completed skeleton, was found there, and is still being excavated today! I'm a sucker for fossils, and I'm glad I got to see part of Africa's Cradle of Humankind.
