Description
The Sterkfontein Caves is one of South Africa's famous heritage sites, situated in the Cradle of Humankind in the Western part of Gauteng. This unspoilt rural area is abundant with caves, clear steams, indigeneous plants and grassy hilltops. The famous skull known as Mrs Ples was discovered by Robert Broom in 1947. Tours to the caves are physically arduous, but the thrill of knowing the secrets to understanding human ancestry that lurks in the depths of limestones and dolomite make it all worthwhile. A visit to Maropeng less than 10km away takes the visitor back millions of years. Maropeng a Setswana word meaning 'returning to the place of origin'. The Tour takes you on a boat journey through the 4 elements, earth, fire, air and ice. Maropeng captures the significance of Africa as the ancestral home of humankind regardless of religion, beliefs, colour or race.
