Day Trip to Chinhoyi Caves

We meet in the foyer of your hotel and drive to the west, towards Kariba. We take the trip by road via a scenic drive crossing the range known as the Great Dyke, which are rich in chrome.About 60km later, we drive to the dreamy ‘sleeping pool’ in Chinhoyi, a deep mysterious body of water in limestone caves. We will explore the area; the Chinhoyi Caves are the focal point of a 365-acre Recreational Park, set in a range of hills. We will enter the Caves through the main entrance with an inclined passage. Here the extraordinary sight is an underground lake called Sleeping Pool, in which the water reaches a depth of 172m. The US Navy divers reached a depth of 135m. Despite its statistic features, the lake is beautiful and enchanting. It is located below one of the daylight windows, under a steep cliff. This cliff was used in the 1830s for execution. The delinquents were simply thrown down the cliff. Today the lake looks innocent. The daylight from above and the high amount of dissolved limestone make the water crystal-clear, and rare, natural coloured. We will wind up the day with a tour to a local village to mix and learn how people live in this area. In the afternoon, we will drive back to your hotel where the tour ends.
