 African tourism needs serious attention because the continent has many historic heritage sites that the world must see and learn from. Africans particularly should also embrace Africa tourism to discover more about the origin of the continent. A good place to focus on is South African tourism.
The country is blessed with some of the world’s amazing and greatest heritage sites. One of such is the Cradle of Humankind, which is the world’s richest hominid site, home to around 40% of the world’s human ancestor fossils.

The wonder cave is a safe single-chamber Wonder Cave, deep under the Witwatersrand. The cave was opened to the public since 1991, is home to fossils of rodents, frogs, lizards and birds, and beautiful rock formations. It is a unique cave to see and learn more about its formation.
Visitors take an elevator down to the chamber of the 60m deep cave. Despite damage from lime mining, the 125m-long, 154m-wide natural wonder has spectacular cave formations.
Features include rimstone pools, mushroom, straw and popcorn formations, “Madonnas”, cave pearls, and stalactites and stalagmites up to 15m in height, most of which are still growing. The cave has its own colony of bats.
Not too far from the cave is also the Maropeng Visitor Centre, an award-winning attraction with loads to offer visitors a journey of discovery to learn more about the origins of humankind.
A thrilling underground boat ride starts the adventure, taking visitors through the various stages of Earth’s creation. The exhibition then tracks the evolution of humankind through fun and interactive displays and games.
