The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site

The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site

Do you believe that humans originated from Africa? The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site also called Maropeng Visitors’ Centre was built in South Africa so people from across the world could learn more about the early development of modern humans.

The design of the structure somehow looks mysterious and draws you closer. All thanks to the creators from two South African firms — GAPP Architects and MMA Studio — for performing this big green high magic.

The idea of the structure shows how mother nature remains the source of man’s existence. From a distance, it also looks like a burial mound rising from the earth. Right?

Let’s not waste too much time outside.

Would you like to see what’s inside the Cradle Of Humankind? How about you get a ticket 🙂
