Ha Kome caves are a group of caves built out of mud in a village called Pulane Ha Kome. These beautiful homes were found by Chief Teleka Kome who was coming from Matatiele, Eastern Cape in 1824. As he was running away from the tribal war, chief Kome came along with his family and animals. The caves were used as a hiding place from the cannibals. The decedents of the former founder are the current inhabitants of the caves.
As known of being chief Rakotsoana cave, the cave was a home of cannibals around 1824. It happened that due to tribal war that hit Southern Africa there was a great famine that led to starvation.

It was during that migration when his few people were caught, slaughtered and devout by cannibals in the cave. The hurting part of this history is his grandfather that he loved the most was among the captives.
