Top things to do around Muldersdrift

With Muldersdrift not far from Joburg is perfect for when you need a quick getaway but don’t want to spend too much time in the car. It makes you feel oh-so-far away from the hustle and bustle of the city but it still has a great country feel to it.

Here’s our suggestions of some of the things to do in Muldersdrift:

Visit the Cradle of Humankind

The Cradle of Humankind is a fascinating place that is most definitely worth a visit (or re-visit) for everyone! Maropeng, the official visitor centre for the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, provides a wealth of information when it comes to the development of humans over the last few millions of years. Here visitors will get the opportunity to see fossils, learn about the origins of humankind and inspect stone tools that are over one million years old! It’s a fascinating place to visit for people of all ages.

The Sterkfontein Caves are located in Maropeng and are world famous for the amazing fossil discoveries that have been made here. It’s recommended that you take a tour through the caves so that you don’t miss out on anything! The most significant fossil discoveries in the caves were ‘Mrs. Ples’, a 2.1-million-year-old Australopithecus skull, and ‘Little Foot’, an almost complete Australopithecus skeleton that is over three-million years old! Note: if you take the tour, don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes as it involves quite a bit of walking.
