Cradle of Humankind Travel Guide

A mere hour's drive from Johannesburg, the Cradle of Humankind is a place of major significance. It was here we first became human.

Broederstroom Town of Hartbeespoort Dam

It's a nice place - We didn't do much. We were mostly at the cottages, but from what I could see passingly, it's a great place to visit with friends and family.

Magaliesburg Town of Magalies Meander

Lovely escape - We love escaping to Magaliesburg for a getaway with family or as a romantic weekend. It is close to Centurion and has lots to do and see! We love the Black Horse Restaurant, especially their beer and strawberry gratinni. We also love the Colonial! What a great place - we felt so at home!
