Tour of Maropeng

Step back in time at the Cradle of Humankind

The essence of the experience

The exhibition at Maropeng takes you on journey of discovery from the beginning of time, through the history of humankind, and into a glaring future. The tour covers the development of humankind over millions of years of evolution, with an exhilarating tour that covers 2500m² of exhibits and an underground boat ride. The Tumulus entrance mirrors an eerie burial mound, depicting the nature of our ancestors and the secrets they died with, illustrates early fossils and hominids, and gloriously exits through a futuristic, silver and glass lined hi-tech arena.
