Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family (2 adults and a teenager) organised this trip by ourselves. We went there on our rental car. We have almost get the entrance by it although we hadn't 4×4 SUV (It was a rainy season and it would be better to rent SUV 4×4 for the nature trips as you need to drive partly on dirt rocky muddy roads). It's close to Tanga, so it took 15-20 min to get the caves. You pay for tickets by cash at the entrance (25€ roughly for 2 adults +1teen). Its include a local guide. After excursion your tips to the guide are welcomed. By the way, we hadn't got payment receipt, so we supposed our money went directly to administration pockets... We've seen impressive halls with thousands of bats living inside. It's easy walking except one short pass where you have to climb up and down. It's rather hot and stuffy inside caves passages. Some fresh water is recommended to take with. This visit is an excellent solution for a day trip outside Tanga. On your way to caves you can see wild monkeys.

Extremely delighted that I went there. Difficult to explain the sheer thrill of walking in the bowels of the earth between stalactites and stalagmites!

Interesting caves, but the people arranging tours keep a monkey on a leash. Very cruel. When we visited the monkey escaped the leash and in panic ran after us an attacked one of us with multiple bloody scratches. The owners hit the monkey and put it back on the leash. I hope the owners will let the monkey free as their treatment was very cruel.

They keep a live monkey tied to a stick for entertainment at the visitor gate. Animal cruelty from the middle ages, despicable.

Learn the value of history and the power of prayers (superstitions) by visiting Amboni Caves, a fascinating historical site where you will understand and ask the experts about stalactites, stalagmites, cave pillars, rimstone pool, cave pearls and the live world. A must visit when in Tanga as is located only 8 Kms north of Tanga City in Tanzania off the Tanga - Mombasa road.

Amboni cave is a nice place to visit and explore the tunnels, do not go inside the caves without a certified local guide.
From a half to a full day trip arrangement you can experience the cave, do not miss while you in Tanga.
