Hominin House, the budget accommodation facility at Maropeng provides the perfect venue for team-building events, youth camps or school groups, and recent upgrades have only enhanced the experience. Wherever possible, the upgrades to Hominin House were done using sustainable and green building concept, including the use of green materials, and implementing steps to reduce energy and waste. Exhibition elements, highlighting sustainability issues, are placed throughout the facility, allowing for Hominin House to be more than just an accommodation venue but an educational site as well.
In addition to the existing dormitory accommodation, which can sleep 120 people, Hominin House now sports six en-suite rooms for teachers or group leaders, an all-purpose hall and an amphitheatre fire pit. The dining area was also enclosed, making it more comfortable during colder weather conditions and turning it into a multi-purpose room that can be used as an additional classroom or breakaway facility when required.
These additions and renovations provide our visitors with a more comfortable stay at Hominin House. Teachers or group leaders will appreciate the privacy provided by their own rooms and en-suite bathrooms. The new hall provides guests with more space for additional educational and team-building activities. Finally, sitting around the new fire pit will encourage some down time and conversation, and affords guests the opportunity to experience the beautiful night skies at Maropeng. Private stargazing evenings can be arranged which make for a perfect after-dinner activity.
A stay at Hominin House is the perfect base for visits to the Maropeng Visitor Centre, the Sterkfontein Caves and other destinations in the Cradle of Humankind. For more information, please email Dorcas Tshabalala on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 014 577 9000.
