A Fantastic Day!

I only had one full day in Joberg, and what an amazing way to spend it! Pascal, my guide, was very knowledgable about such a wide variety of things, and as a solo traveller he made me feel at ease! The Caves themselves and visitor centre are not to be missed

Good experience

For those that will be doing a Safari the Lion Park is not a good option. The vehicles over there are like cages and you cannot see the animals very well. On the other hand, the Cradle of the Humankind was a excellent activity! Going to the caves and the museum was incredible!

Safari excellent. Cradle of Mankind very interesting. Caves were mixed thoughts. Caves not for non athletic visitors. Caves requires you to duck below 3 feet multiple times and get clothes muddy crawling through tunnels. Some good rock formations but covered in black dust.
