Maropeng’s stunning architecture and landscape draws in the media

  • May 11, 2009

Maropeng has featured prominently in local and national media recently. The dramatic building that houses the visitor centre has caught the attention of many location scouts, and most recently formed the backdrop for a photoshoot with local musician Lira in an Audi Magazine spread.

An extract from the article reads: “The photo shoot is taking place at Maropeng in the Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site that celebrates the journey of humanity. It is the perfect place for talking to the beautiful Lira about her journey—from a talented teenager to one of South Africa’s most popular artists.

Sales and Marketing Assistant Sylvia Makgetla, pictured above with Lira at the photoshoot, said, “Meeting Lira was an amazing and an encouraging experience. She is an example of one of my life’s beliefs – that you give the world the greatest gift by being you, and not forgetting where you come from while you focus on where you want to be.”

National Geographic, SABC and ETV are other examples of media that have recently visited Maropeng for photoshoots and filming.
