Sterkfontein Caves Overview

There are 15 major fossil sites in the Cradle of Humankind of which the Sterkfontein Caves is the richest. A guided tour of the Caves which descend 60 meters below the ground will leave you with memorable and informative experience.

Sterkfontein Caves in the Cradle of humankind was declared A WORLD HERITAGE SITE by UNESCO in 1999, because of its exceptional contribution, to our understanding of Humankind History, and development over more than 3 million years. It is about 50km north-west of Johannesburg.

About 1000 hominid fossils have been discovered at Sterkfontein Caves. It is one of the richest and most productive Polaeo-anthrological sites in the world. The birth place of Humanity. Ancestors lived here for more than 3 million years ago.

Fossils on display are a testimony to the origins of Humankind. The Ape-man skull discovered by Robert Broom in 1947 is one of the fossils on display. The skull was later named Mrs. Ples; this skull rocketed Sterkfontein Caves into World prominence. The skull is estimated to be more than 2.3 million years old. Professor Ron Clarke discovered the little foot; an almost complete hominid skeleton aged about 3.5 million years old. 

A 20 metre tall concrete visitor centre houses the following:
- Homonym exhibition hall with highly informative displays.
- A charming souvenir shop
- A restaurant offering spectacular view of the surrounding sites
