Geocache Description:

The Kuil is a natural sinkhole that served, according to tradition, as a jail during Griqua reign. There is no evidence that the 5m deep pit was really used as a prison. Many stories are told about the venomous snakes that lived in the pit.

Prisoners were let down into the pit with a rope. Food and water were sent down daily for the duration of their captivity.
The prisoner was given a short walking stick or “kierie” to defend himself. Buckets full of dead snakes were said to be cleaned out of the pit every day. Some say that nobody left the pit alive. Others say that anybody who survived their first 24 hours in the pit was set free.

After we visited my mom that live closeby, we set out to find the "kuil" of Daniëlskuil. We found nothing on the internet on the acctual location of the pit, we asked some locals and after about 2hours of driving around we finally found the enclosed "kuil". We knew we had to leave a cache here for future visitors to find.

The cache is NOT located incside the fenced off area.
