      Situated in a World Heritage Site, The Cradle of Humankind, this 1 200-hectare park is home to over 700 head of game including white rhino, lion, buffalo, cheetah, wild dog, hippo and crocodile. Their newly built breeding centre houses, amongst others, Bengal and Syberian tigers, jaguars and white lions. If your holiday is nearing its end, but you still need to get those photos to impress your friends - this is it! We conduct a driving tour in our closed air-conditioned Ulysses vehicle through the Park and predator camps and the tour is concluded with a walk through their breeding centre and crèche area.

      Stop At: Wonder Caves, 520 Kromdraai Rd, Kromdraai, 1739, South Africa

      The Wonder Caves are one of the most beautiful naturally decorated caves in South Africa. Since its discovery only 100 years ago, few people have entered the Caves and it is thus relatively well preserved and virtually untouched. The enormous cave chamber with a volume of 46 000 cubic metres is believed to be 2.2 million year old. Hourly tours are conducted on well-lit pathways where no crawling is necessary. Access to the underground cavern is by means of about 90 steps and then a lift. No crawling is necessary

      What You Can Expect
      • Natural Wonder 5 – 10 million years old
      • Cave Pearls
      • Formations up to 15m
      • Rim Stone pool
      • Stalactites & Stalagmites


      Duration: 2 hours

      Stop At: Sterkfontein Caves Rd. Kromdraai Road Off the R563, Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site South Africa

      In 1947 a well-preserved skull of a species of early man known as Plesianthropus transvaalensis was discovered. The skull became known as Mrs. Ples, dating back 2.5 million years. The total of over 700 hominid specimens found here has made Sterkfontein the world’s richest hominid site. A section of the caves is visited on an hour long guided tour and the excavation site can be viewed. A visit to the newly built Sterkfontein Orientation Centre is also included, displaying information about significant findings, as well as general information on human and cultural evolution.
