Pics: Cradle of Humankind

Maropeng, the visitors centre at the Cradle of Humankind - just 45-minutes drive from central Johannesburg - is a fountain of anthropological knowledge.

When: Dates to be confirmed (06 -15 August 2013)
Where: Cradle of Humankind

The core festival and expo takes place in the heart of the Cradle, at the iconic, Maropeng Visitor Centre, with surrounding restaurants, hotels and hot spots offering special deals and competitions over this period.

If bikes are not for you and you'd prefer your own feet pounding the trail then enter into the trail run. It comes with two options, an 8km or 16km route each with its own obstacles. With a great kiddies play area and dedicated kids programme you can relax a bit knowing your children are being kept busy. Don't forget to stop off at the craft expo with exhibitors from the surrounding area.

Tickets cost R50.00 for adults and R25.00 for children and entrance to the Visitors Centre will be discounted on presentation of your Festival ticket.
