The first part of the tour sees us driving through the green suburbs of Johannesburg towards the Cradle of Humankind where the Sterkfontein Caves are situated. Once we get there you will be met by a cave expert who will take you through the museum of archaeology before you brave the incredible and ancient labyrinths of limestone caverns, stalactites, and stalagmites of the Sterkfontein Caves. The underground takes about an hour and you will get to see not only the fascinating natural features of a 4 million-year-old cave but will pass the many excavation sites where the oldest human skull and bones were extracted from the rock. Don’t worry about crawling through small spaces while trailing out a line of string to find our way back. The caverns inside the Sterkfontein Caves are pretty big with built-in walkways. So, getting lost is virtually impossible.
Once you finally make your way back to daylight, we take the 20-minute drive through to the Lesedi Cultural Village.
The first part of the tour involves a dynamic and charismatic Zulu warrior taking you on a historical and cultural tour of the many South African villages that make up our Rainbow Nation. He will illustrate to you how people have been living for centuries. What food they eat. How they farm. Once the village tour is complete, you will be blown away with a 45-minute drumming and Zulu dancing show. A vital part of the cultural heritage of many South African tribes. After the drumming and dancing session, we will indulge your senses in a traditional South African lunch and this concludes the full-day tour.
