A truly remarkable experience, the Maropeng and the Cradle of Humankind Tour is a must-do excursion for those visiting Johannesburg. The tour heads just outside of Johannesburg city to the site demarcated as the birthplace of life. Boasting 13 internationally recognized excavation sites, Maropeng, which translates to ‘returning to the place of origin’, is home to the discovery of the first Hominid Fossil, discovered in 1924. Aside from viewing the incredible museum, visit the Sterkfontein Caves, one of the richest and most productive Palaeo-anthropological sites in the world, where scientists made remarkable discoveries including Mrs. Ples, Little Foot and Homo Naledi.
