What people are saying about Cradle of Humankind

Safari excellent. Cradle of Mankind very interesting. Caves were mixed thoughts. Caves not for non athletic visitors. Caves requires you to duck below 3 feet multiple times and get clothes muddy crawling through tunnels. Some good rock formations but covered in black dust.

The tour is mandatory, especially if your guide is Christopher, what a great guy! Funny and clever. If you go on this tour and you’ve got him on it, your visit to this area is covered. I isn’t cheap, but I have to admit it’s just worth it.

Great experience overall....most of all it was safe....vehicle clean and comfortable....excellent driver and tour guide....pick up on time....we really enjoyed the lions and going to cradle of mankind.

Great day! Cave was very interesting, but be ready for some stairs & walking. The Lion Safari was awesome! Loved playing with the lions.

Everything perfect, excellent, supper. good guidance. thank you very much
