Gchwihaba Caves

Gcwihaba caves are one of the wildest and most remote destinations in Botswana. Gcwihaba is an underground maze of caverns and pits, linked passages, stalagmite and stalactite formations, and flowstones that appear like waterfalls of rock. The main cavern is called ‘Drotsky’s cavern. Gcwihaba is a National Monument and a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Gcwihaba caves cover an area of about 2500 km2. The most common species in these caves are the Commerson’s Leaf-nosed Bat, the tiny Dent’s Horseshoe Bat and the Egyptian Slitfaced Bat. The caves are located in North West Botswana in the Ngamiland District.
