Visiting Dragon's Breath Cave, Kalahari Desert, Africa.

One of the things you have to keep in mind when thinking about paying a visit to the Dragon's Breath Cave in the Kalahari Desert is that you can't do that on the spur of the moment.

Not if you have a descent into the bowels of the earth in mind that is. It takes some serious planning for doing so, because the cave is situated about 109 yards underground. This takes a lot of equipment and some experience when it comes to abseiling. Once you have overcome that obstacle, you are by no means ready yet to take the plunge into the 4 acre lake.

Besides the descent, it also requires more climbing, squeezing through narrow tunnels, balancing on narrow ledges, and another 100 feet drop down from the cave's roof to reach the waters below. Once you have done that, you will need cave-diving skills, expertise, and qualifications, to explore all that lies beneath the surface.

You don't have to acquire all the equipment, but can take advantage of guided 'tours' into the cave and lake which are also available. It does require you possess all the expertise and qualifications to explore them.

Dragon's Breath Cave sure doesn't give up its treasures easily, does it? Even though it takes time, effort, and a lot of planning in advance, those treasures are well worth it!
