We notice that the following cave is not in the downloadable file hopefully can be added with the next up date along with the caves list above.

Barker's Chalet S28 56.123 E029 11.137 Elevation 1733m Max 10 people (looks like it could hold more).

Good water supply all year round.

I have finally gotten around to putting out an update to the caves GPS data download. Up until this point the data has been only that which I have captured personally, for this update I have included data from Rhinoandhedgehog and from MarkT -  thank you for contributing! The following caves were added: Venice Cave, Chameleon Cave, Barker's Chalet, Aasvoelkraans Cave and Caracal Cave.

Further contributions to this download file are welcome and the contributors are acknowledged on the main download page for the file . Contributions should be data that is as accurate and reliable, so please only submit good readings that you are confident of. I know sometimes the weather and location make accurate readings difficult. Reviews of existing waypoints in the download file are also welcome (for example if more accurate readings are available).

The location for Aasvoelkrans Cave seems to be incorrect in the latest download, it's actually about 400m to the NE.



I don't have the data for Caracal Cave, but at first glance the waypoint also appears to be about 400m South of the actual cave.

Thanks for picking up on that Dillon. I had my own reading for Aasvoelkrans Cave which I dug up from my files now and have updated the file accordingly. I have removed Caracal Cave for now.

I have the following co-ordinates for Caracal Cave, taken last year on a borrowed GPS (assured that it was set on correct settings): -29.288953°   29.599789° and the attached .kmz file.
Trust they are correct.

Thanks Sterkhorn.

I will be releasing a new version of the download in a few days. Are there any other additions or corrections that anyone wants to add?
