The Cradle of Humankind

The Cradle of Humankind is a World Heritage Site in the Gauteng province, only a one hours’ drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria.

It is one of eight South African World Heritage Sites and the world’s richest hominin site. Some hominin fossils date back as far as 3.5 million years ago. The Cradle of Humankind is also recognised as the place from which all of humankind originated.

Maropeng is the official visitor centre of the Cradle of Humankind with fascinating displays. Be sure to also visit the Sterkfontein Caves.
