Tour Overview

The Cradle of Humankind and accompanying Maropeng Visitor Centre take visitors on an awe-inspiring journey through the history of humankind. In 1936, 2.3 million-year-old humanoid fossils – thought to be our earliest ancestors – were discovered in the site’s limestone caves, endearing the area as the birthplace of humans. On this tour, you’ll travel back in time at the Visitor Centre and the Cradle, before exploring South Africa’s cultural legacy at the nearby Lesedi Cultural Village.
