A cave is probably safer than a tent but remember don't sit or stand in the entrance as the lightning is looking for the easiest path and standing in the entrance provides it with a lower resistance to bridge the gap across the mouth of the cave.
More than half of lightning fatalities are caused by ground current i.e. current flowing in the ground.  Your body provides less resistance than the ground and so the current will choose to flow through you.  Therefore NEVER lie down; rather sit or better still squat on your feet with as much insulation under you as possible.
