  • The Sterkfontein Caves site is home to a top restaurant, conferencing facilities, easy access to the caves themselves, modern walkways and a boardwalk past the excavation site where world-acclaimed fossils have been discovered.
  • It is highly interactive and enjoyable, and will engage visitors of all ages. Our world was born in a ball of burning gas 4.6-billion years ago, in a universe that is about 14-billion years old. Over time it cooled, the early atmosphere formed, and the first land masses appeared.
  • The first life forms, which were like the black algae you sometimes see in swimming pools today, emerged about 3.8-billion years ago.


Trip Info

Take a trip to this wonderful heritage site and learn of the history of mankind. The tour picks you from your hotel/house and drives to Maropeng where you will experience a 2,5 hr journey through the history of mankind, thereafter we go to the wonder caves before driving back to your hotel/house.

The Cradle of Humankind is one of eight World Heritage Sites in South Africa, and the only one in Gauteng. It is widely recognised as the place from which all of humankind originated.

The Sterkfontein Caves are owned by the University of the Witwatersrand, whose scientists have been responsible for the main excavations of the World Heritage Site. They are credited with many of the famous discoveries including the world famous “Mrs Ples” and “Little Foot”, an almost complete Australopithecus skeleton dating back more than 3-million years.
