Swartkrans Walking Tour: This event is held on the 16th of April 2011. Tickets for this event cost R350 and includes a light picnic lunch. Maropeng is happy to announce that they will be hosting the popular Swartkrans Walking Tour again in 2011. Swartkrans, one of the Cradle of Human Kind’s richest fossil sites, is usually closed to the public. But on these tours, small groups have a rare opportunity to observe an active palaeontological dig & will be guided around the site by scientist Morris Sutton, who is currently excavating there. Swartkrans has yielded the largest sample of Paranthropus robustus, and it is also significant for the discovery of the earliest evidence of the use of controlled fire in Southern Africa, dating back 1 million years.
