Our group in general
The Cape Peninsula Spelæological Society – known locally as CPSS, is a Cape Town based cave exploration club with a history extending back to 1954. Our enthusiastic members promote the safe exploration, recording and conservation of local sandstone and limestone based cave systems on the Cape Peninsula and around the Western Cape. Together with other member groups of the South African Spelæological Association (SASA) we facilitate recreational and scientific endeavors associated with cave systems around South Africa.
Our club holds regular cave exploration meets on the first Sunday of each month and occasionally over weekends. We explore existing caves, search for more caves, learn new techniques and enjoy caving with members and friends. It is at these meets that new members and visitors are introduced to caving in a safe and controlled environment in which they are taught how to cave responsibly and safely.
