Human Origins – Explore the Cradle of Humankind

Join us on our human origins trip as we travel to the cradle of humankind in search of our earliest roots. The official visitors centre (Maropeng) means "returning to the place of origin" in Setswana, one of South Africa's 12 official languages. The cradle is a World Heritage Site and is a tribute to the 3 million years our ancestors have lived in this area. Along with the exhibits and fascinating interactive displays we also explore the Sterkfontein caves. A large number of early human fossil discoveries have been found here. And if this wasn't enough we also take you on an exciting tour of the Lion Safari Park where you'll have the exciting opportunity to interact with giraffe and lion cubs!
