Description

Maropeng Tour:

Maropeng, meaning “Returning to the place of origin,” is situated on a World Heritage site known as The Cradle of Humankind. Think ‘Big Bang Theory,’ but even better! Head towards the grand Tumulus building that houses the exhibition and transport yourself back in time. Learn how we evolved over millions of years, check out the fossils that have been excavated, watch videos of the times of dinosaurs and hop on an underground boat ride to the creation of the earth. We then head to Sterkfontein Caves.

Sterkfontein caves:

The caves also form part of the Cradle of Human Kind World Heritage site, named by UNESCO in 1999. Now this is where things get exciting, with an actual cave exploration down below. Here in amongst the large masses of rock lies fossils that date back as far as 4 billion years. The famous ‘Mrs Ples’ and ‘Little foot’ are amongst those fossils found that have given scientists a lot of information about how us, ‘Homo Sapiens’ came to be.

Note: This tour can get a bit tricky in places as you will need to squeeze through some tight spots. If you are claustrophobic then you might want to stay above and check out the exhibition.
