What's happening at Maropeng this April

  • April 02, 2014

Get out your diary and start planning your next visit to Maropeng, because April promises to be a busy month, jam-packed with fantastic events and amazing specials.

Sunday carvery lunches are always special at Maropeng. And this Easter they'll be even better ...

Our Sunday carvery lunches at the Tumulus restaurant are always a big hit with the whole family. In April there’s a bonus Easter carvery that runs from 18-21 April, over the long weekend. (Please note that the Easter carvery rates apply on Easter Sunday.)

We are hosting two events on 5 April: The history of chocolate and chocolate tasting at the Maropeng Hotel, and a Cooper’s Cave tour and picnic with palaeoanthropologist Christine Steininger.

The chocolate tasting is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth, while the Cooper’s Cave tour gives you the chance to get up close and personal with actual fossils still embedded in the cave’s walls.

Astronomer Vincent Nettmann will be hosting a fascinating stargazing event at the Tumulus restaurant on 12 April

On 12 April our resident astronomer, Vincent Nettmann, will be conducting a stargazing event titled "Galileo and the Planets, the Man Who Changed the World" at the Tumulus restaurant. The event includes a fascinating talk, a laser-guided binocular sky tour, and the chance to stargaze through a large-aperture telescope. It’s suitable for all ages, so bring the kids along!

The Easter weekend (18-21 April) will see a special Easter carvery being served every day at the Tumulus restaurant, with exciting Easter treats for the whole family.

We’ll also be running a fantastic hotel special from 17-21 April with greatly reduced room rates and the option to include meals and tickets to the Maropeng Exhibition and Sterkfontein Caves, also at a special rate.

Maropeng has put together a number of fun and educational kiddies’ birthday party packages. While parents relax and enjoy the splendour of their surroundings, the children will be entertained by a guided tour of the Sterkfontein Caves or Maropeng Exhibition, followed by supervised party games.

A number of optional party extras, such as a birthday cake, lunch packs, lucky packets, jumping castle and child minders, are also available.
