Dr Yoav Eytam's website "Secrets of De Hoop and Environs" comprises extensive field notes on the Geomorphology, Hydrology and Archaeology between Cape Agulhas and Cape Infanta: It contains much about the Cape coastal limestone at the De Hoop Nature Reserve et al, and the caves thereon about which the members of the S.A. Spelaeological Association have done much field work.

An article by TF (Tim) Truluck, "The Survey of Bats' / Giant's / new Climber's Cave System" mentions his and others' contribution to the exploration of the Back Table Caves . An unreferenced copy is on the administrative file for BC788 Nelson Collection.
