Gchvihab Caves
Botswana, Ngamiland East

Gchvikhaba Caves (Drocky Cave) - also belong to the category of unique natural formations of this region (in South Africa, caves themselves are very rare). This is a whole system of caves with numerous stalagmites and stalactites, some of which reach a height of up to 10 meters. Caves were formed by seeping water flows through dolomite rocks. Water introduced a large number of the most diverse salts and microelements into the mineral composition of local rocks and "created" the decoration in the form of multi-colored walls and arches of all rainbow colors "from floor to ceiling". Kung tribes first showed these caves to the European, Martinus Drocki, in the mid 30-ies of the XX century. Since then, countless groups of cavers, tourists and simply treasure seekers have been searching for a treasure buried here according to legend, which is believed to have been hidden from European colonialists by descendants of local dynastic families somewhere in caves. Most of the route through the caves is a rather easy walk through large picturesque halls and passages with a lot of seductive manholes and tunnels somewhere to the side, but there are some especially terrible and dangerous places that break into underground chasms or threaten with rockfalls.
