Celebrate Christmas in the Cradle of Humankind at Maropeng

The Cradle of Humankind is the perfect place to spend meaningful time with your family and friends. No matter your culture or religion this time of the year is the season for relaxation; reflection; visiting; family bonding and entertainment.

Maropeng and other businesses across the World Heritage Site are providing exciting experiences for visitors from across all faiths and cultures to enjoy during this holiday period. You can indulge in luxury accommodation; day tours; adrenaline filled activities and a culinary adventure this December!

Maropeng has engaged in support of local businesses and initiatives during this festive season. They have contracted some of the local crafters of GaMogale to design and construct a selection of festive decorations which includes spectacular hand – crafted wire Baobab trees; giant glittering hanging balls to hang over the visitor center fountain and a range of smaller items which children visiting the site will be encouraged to finish off, as ornaments to take home with them.

Maropeng has approached a local school – Bekker High School with the offer of an exposure program where tourism learners will experience a bustling tourism site such a Maropeng over a busy period. These learners will receive certificates from the World Heritage Site Management Authority for their future CV’s.

The event will also showcase the talents of local artists on the stage for live performances each day. Family entertainment will comprise a food market; beer garden; jumping castles and a very special experience for children in Santa’s specially constructed kiddies cave, where real Elves will entrance them. Just a stone’s – throw away from Johannesburg and Pretoria – visit The Cradle Of Humankind.

Maropeng seeks Santa!
