An advise: the MoAfrkaTours that operates this tour arrived 35 minutes later and the guide made us run too much in the Cradle of Humankind (1 hour isn’t enough for this tour...) and didn’t explain, even get us there, about the collection of magnifiques statues of African personalities in the story...and in the road...what a race...

When we arrived it was not clear what we had to do, until we asked the personnel who gave us the helmets. The guide of the cave tour was very prepared and gave us lots of interesting info.
