Cradle of Humankind

Maropeng & Sterkfontein Caves
Situated 30 minutes from Johannesburg, The Cradle of Humankind is in the Kromdraai Valley famous for its paleontological sites where some of the oldest relics of mankind have been found.
The caves found in a dolomite hill in the Isaac Stegman nature Reserve, are the site of the famous "Mrs. Ples" who is about 2, 7 million years old and was discovered by Dr Robert Broom in 1947. This area is now a World Heritage Site.

The recently upgraded  museum houses some of the fossils found in the cave and excavations conducted by the University of the Witwatersrand continue at the caves. Maropeng, consisting of a short man made river ride and museum tour of the evolution of man is the perfect combination with the caves for a near complete understanding of our evolution.
Guests are advised to wear comfortable walking shoes.
