Maropeng is a great place to host your matric farewell

Looking for something unique and special for this year’s matric farewell? Why not plan a stylish final school event at Maropeng in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site?

Maropeng’s professional and friendly staff are on hand to assist you in creating an event to remember in their modern and stylish Tumulus facility. We have designed a special matric farewell package, with three menus options from which to chose from and an optional overnight stay for learners and educators. 

“Having all of the necessary facilities is one thing. Being able to provide learners with a unique and memorable experience that is also affordable, is something very few venues are able to do,” says Magel van de Venter, customer relationship manager at Maropeng.

“The Tumulus building, suggestive of an ancient underground burial mound, has expansive open areas that can be transformed from a blank canvas to a dramatic back-drop for special events.”

Together with a choice of three buffet menu options designed to suit all budgets, learners can also opt to extend their once-in-a-lifetime experience by staying over at Hominid House. For just R145 per person, learners and educators have access to comfortable budget accommodation in Hominid House, rounded off with a hearty breakfast the next morning.

Hominid House has four dormitory-style rooms that sleep up to 120 learners, and has separate communal bathrooms and rooms for educators.

“Situated in the scenic Cradle of Humankind, with its unbeatable views and the origin of much of our local heritage, together with great food and outstanding service, a matric farewell at Maropeng is guaranteed to be a memorable one,” adds Van de Venter.
