Excellent combination tour with excellent guide

The tour is a combination of cultural (Sterkfontein Caves & At the Maropeng Visitor Center) and natural (Lion Park) interests. The lunch at Maropeng with beautiful view of the surroundings was just great and relaxing. Jason Pollard is an excellent and knowledgeable guide discretely accomodating to your needs. Caressing lion cubs and cheetahs at Lion Park is an unforgatable experience. I enjoyed every moment of the tour and recommend it to anyone.

An awesome introduction to South Africa's natural wonders

This was our first major excursion after arriving in South Africa. The game park was excellent, but we had not yet been to Kruger to see the "Big 5" in the wild. I personally loved the cave (cavern) experience, but it was physically strenuous and might be difficult for some people. The "cradle of humanity" fossils and related museum were amazing! Our guide, Jason, was excellent throughout the long, activity-filled day.

A great day at the Lion Park, the caves & at the safari!

It was a beautiful day. Jason was very prompt in picking us up. He informed us of what to expect & was a wonderful driver & guide for us. We were thrilled he encouraged us to visit the lion cubs early...the cubs were very cute & playful. Jason also helped us to visit the cheetahs. If you get a chance, this is a winner of a tour!

Your guide James was amazing. Knowledgeable and pleasant.

James was amazing!! The tour is a little rushed but all in all a very informative and entertaining tour. The caves are very physically challenging and that cannot be stressed enough. Good health overall is a necessity.

Cradle of Humankind: Shared Half-Day Tour Reviewed by

The tour was close to perfect, a real highlight of our trip to SA.

Our guide, Jason, was knowledgable and took care of all our needs. We had ample time for all activities. Somehow, we had no crowds at any location.
