Cradle of Humankind
The Sterkfontein Caves - about 50 km from Johannesburg - is the site of some of the most important discoveries concerning the evolution of man and have been declared a World Heritage Site. It holds fossils which are believed to date back 2 million years ago. If it's true that Africa is the cradle of all mankind - and most paleontologists believe this to be so - then Sterkfontein Caves is surely one of the continent's sacred sites. The Sterkfontein caves have been described as the 'anthropological treasure-house of the world'.
