Our favourite Instagram photos from our visitors

  • February 16, 2016

The oldest examples of human art are cave paintings that date back some 40 000 years. The invention of photography happened around 200 years ago. And in the last few years, photo-sharing app Instagram has become one of the most popular ways to share images with others around the world – 30-billion photos have been uploaded to the platform so far!

Find us on Instagram – @MaropengSA – and tag us in your favourite moments spent at the visitor centre. Below are some of our recent favourites:
