Cradle of Mankind Tour

Cradle of Mankind Tour


per person

The Maropeng Visitor Centre at The Cradle of Humankind is an information and science hub where you find exciting and educational exhibitions that focus on the evolution of humans over the past few million years. Maropeng is a Setswana word which means “returning to the place of origin”. It’s believed that our ancestors first inhabited the area where you find The Cradle of Humankind over 3-million years ago. The Sterkfontein Caves is the site of some of the most important discoveries concerning the evolution of man and has been declared a World Heritage Site. If it’s true
that Africa is the ‘cradle of all humankind’ – and most palaeontologists believe this to be so – then Sterkfontein Caves is surely one of the world’s most sacred sites. The Sterkfontein Caves have been described as the anthropological treasure-house of the world’.
