45 minute drive from Johannesburg International Airport.
See key map (E 2). Situated in Gauteng Province.

Africa gave birth in her steamy jungles and great rift valleys and along her pristine coastlines to humankind. You and I, and all our ancestors can trace back our bloodlines to our common ancestry in the heat, dust and beauty of this great continent. In our quest to get nearer to the truth of how humans evolved, there is no part of the world that has yielded more secrets than the dozen or more fossil-bearing caves in the Cradle of Humankind.

A visit to Maropeng takes you into a Tumulus with a 4-billion year journey on an underground lake, through the element forces -water, air, fire and earth-dipping through waterfalls and icebergs into the eye of a storm, past erupting volcanoes and through the depths of earth to the beginning of the world, incorporating an underground extensive display which immerses visitors in touching, hearing, feeling, seeing and experiencing the unique history of humankind. There are also real fossils on display at an additional cost. (Cradle of Humankind)

Maropeng also offers you fine restaurants, kiosks, public bar, and African souvenir shops to round the visit off.

One-day conference or break-away venues available at Tumulus (Contact us for more details).
