Having the necessary conferencing facilities is one thing ... providing guests and delegates with a memorable (and affordable) experience is quite another – and for Maropeng, this is first prize.

With its gorgeous surroundings and custom-made tour and team-building packages, Maropeng is an ideal venue for those wanting luxury accommodation and first-class conferencing and incentive facilities in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site.

Facilities include an award-winning visitor centre to the World Heritage Site, a 24-bedroom four-star hotel, small conference rooms for niche corporate groups, an outdoor amphitheatre housing up to 10 000 people, group accommodation at Hominid House, an in-house spa service by La Cigale, and two restaurants.

Smaller conference venues cater to niche business tourism events

Maropeng’s smaller business tourism facilities include three contemporary conference rooms, each fully equipped. The visitor centre can accommodate larger conference groups of up to 320 delegates in the Tumulus building, where the exhibition is situated.

The versatile Tumulus building has expansive open areas that can be transformed into dramatic platforms for product launches, corporate functions, and events and exhibitions.

For larger events (with more than 320 guests), a marquee can be set up in the grounds at Maropeng. Full catering can be arranged, including kosher and halaal menus.
