While visiting Johannesburg or
Pretoria, why not spend a half or full-day with us on an exciting and unique
adventure into our own distant past!? We offer individuals or groups the rare
opportunity to tour some of the world's most important and richest pre-human
fossil sites in the "Cradle
of Humankind" World Heritage Site, Gauteng, South Africa. These
fossils sites include the world-famous heritage sites of Sterkfontein and Drimolen,
two of the three richest Palaeo-anthropological sites in southern Africa.
Since 1936, some of the most exciting fossils our human ancestors have been found, only 50 minutes from Johannesburg or Pretoria, South Africa at the dolomitic cave sites in the "Cradle". Palaeo-Tours has been providing specialist, scientist-led tours to the general public for over ten years. So join us for a private tour of these sites with our staff of Palaeo-anthropologists and Archaeologists and gain a glimpse into the world of our ancestors.
Palaeo Tours has
been conducting tours to the fossil sites in the "Cradle of Humankind"
since 1997. We have introduced thousands of people to the fascinating
study of human origins. Our unique specialty is that we work intimately with the Palaeontologists, Palaeo-anthropologists and
Archaeologists either running these sites or studying for their graduate degrees
on topics based on these World Heritage Fossil Sites. We are happy to tailor make a tour for an individual or a group. All tours are private and need to be arranged in advance. Please send us a booking request to check availability as we do book up in advance.
