hike to see San rock art

We will be spending a few days in the Drakensberg region in September and South African cousins of ours have suggested that we join them on a hike to Elands Cave (Didima Gorge) to see the abundant rock art there. We'd love to, but at ages 65 and 71, I'm concerned about the level of demand of that hike (all day, 20k). I would like to hear from someone who has done that hike about how realistic it is for two fit but older individuals to attempt it. I also would like to know if the trail is unstable at any points, since my husband has difficulty maintaining his balance as well as he'd like on rocky trails that shift underfoot. If we forego this hike, is there a somewhat easier alternative that would allow us to see some prime examples of San rock art? I would say we're comfortable with moderate, but not difficult, trails. Thanks!
