Cradle of Humankind & Sterkfontein Caves Tour
See the Cradle of Mankind
The Cradle of Humankind was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in December 1999. Experience the Cradle of Humankind & Sterkfontein Caves in a fun filled day tour.
This fun-filled full day tour starts at the Maropeng Visitors Centre. Read up on the facts about the evolution of the world and especially humankind, explained in an interactive way.
See fossils, learn how humankind evolved, view stone tools up to 1-million years old, take a ride through the ‘ice age’ or buy a typical souvenir at one of the market stalls and the curio shop. Maropeng is fun and informative for young and old alike!
From Maropeng we proceed to the Visitors Centre of the Sterkfontein Caves, where a permanent hominid exhibition is displayed. Paleontologists and archaeologists consider this to be one of the top archaeological sites in the world. A tour into the caves is included!
