The Cradle of Humankind is a World Heritage Site that is home to some of the most important paleontological discoveries ever made.
Guests are met at any location of their choice in either Johannesburg or Pretoria from where we make our way to the Cradle of Humankind. This 47 000 hectare area is situated some 50km northwest of Johannesburg. The Cradle of Humankind is a World Heritage Site which came to global prominence in 1947 when Dr. Robert Broom excavated the now famous "Mrs Ples", one of the most important paleontological discoveries ever made. The fossil, which is estimated to be 2.3 million years old, was discovered at the Sterkfontein Caves, the most significant of the 13 excavation sites found at the Cradle of Humankind.
The day tour is devoted to exploring the Sterkfontein Caves and the insightful Maropeng Visitor Center in the company of your experienced guide. During the late afternoon, the tour makes its way back to Pretoria or Johannesburg where guests are dropped off at any location of their choice.
