"Cradle of humanity" Sterkfontein Tip by crazyguitar
Sterkfontein, Johannesburg: 9 reviews and 18 photos
Sterkfontein is a palaeontological and archaeological site. It is the place where the very fist adult ape-man was found: "Little Foot", the 3.3m year old hominid skeleton that could be the missing link between hominids (human beings) and apes. You can visit the nice caves where it was found, outside the cave there is a small museum. Unfortunately it is not possible to see those Australopithecus bones, and most of the interesting pieces found there are in Pretoria or in other museums., anyway it´s a nice place to go.
