The museum visit was very interesting and educational. It explained the evolution of our species through various interactive exhibits. Going underground to see where the fossils were discovered was a fun experience. Would recommend this tour.

We truly enjoyed our experience at the Cradle of Humankind. Our son learnt lots because he is studying about it at school. Our Guide Soly was so knowledgeable and gave us an informative lecture about it. Thanks Soly
