Half-Day Maropeng, Cradle of Humankind & Sterkfontein Caves

Book Now With Activity Bridge

This tour offers those wanting to experience the birthplace of life, a first-hand experience.

The Cradle of Humankind is one of eight world heritage sites in South Africa boasting 13 excavation sites that’s recognised worldwide. The first Hominid Fossil was discovered in 1924.

Visit the Maropeng (meaning “returning to the place of origin”) Museum and witness how we evolved into the people we are today,  discover some of the extinct species of animals that went extinct in the last century and see how humans are busy destroying the earth in real-time. Our tour continues to the Sterkfontein Caves, one of the richest and most productive Palaeo-anthropological sites in the world that forms part of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site.

Amongst the most remarkable findings to have been made by numerous world famous scientists within the Cradle of Humankind is the famous Mrs. Ples, the first complete Australopithecus skull to be discovered and more recently, “Little Foot”, a 4.17 million-year-old almost complete ape-man skeleton that was discovered in the same caves.
