Nelsons Bay Cave- oldest inhabited cave know to man - Nelson Bay Cave is located on the Robberg Peninsula (34°06' S, 23°24' E) at Plettenberg Bay, Cape Province, South Africa. Excavation of the Late Quaternary fill of the cave has provided a rich assemblage of mammalian remains dated between ca. 18,000 and 5000 radiocarbon years B.P.The earlier change is especially clear-cut and is interpreted to reflect the disappearance of grassland from the area as well as the influence of rising sea level.
