Service Description

We drive to The Cradle of Human Kind/Maropeng for a tour of a journey back in time from the start of our universe, some 14-billion years ago. We visit the Tumulus building to browse the interactive displays, have lunch (own cost) at the Tumulus restaurant and then go to the Sterkfontein Caves to see where world-acclaimed fossils were discovered. 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. The tours at the Sterkfontein Caves start above ground and then take visitors deep into the caves.
