Accommodation near Maropeng Museum

The Maropeng Museum is a must-see destination, located in the east of Gauteng. It is well-known for being the official visitors' centre at the Cradle of Humankind. The Cradle of Humankind is 1 of South Africa's 8 World Heritage Sites and is widely recognised for being the very place where all of humankind originated.

The Cradle is a large complex consisting of the Sterkfontein Caves, Maropeng as well as a restaurant, curio shop and a few other amenities. The complex is situated roughly an hour's drive outside of Johannesburg and Pretoria, making it incredibly easy to visit one of the most eye-opening places on earth.

The Sterkfontein Caves are renowned for being the oldest and most consistently excavated paleontological dig in the world. It is most famous for the incredible unearthing of Mrs Ples, a 2.3 million year old pre-human skull, and Little Foot, an almost complete hominid skeleton dating back 4.7 million years!

An experience at the Sterkfontein Caves goes hand in hand with a visit to the Maropeng Museum. While the caves provide the initial, 'glitzy' wow-factor, the museum is where the experience is put into perspective. The fossils are displayed behind glass cases and everything that you look at in the caves is explained at the museum. Overall the Maropeng Museum looks at the development of humans and our ancestors over the past few millions of years.

The museum displays cover 2500 square metres - a whole lot of space for an exciting self-guided and highly interactive tour into the past. Even those who claim to have no interest in evolution will be sucked into the incredibly fascinating world of the past!
