Tri­pAd­vi­sor trav­ellers have once again rat­ed the Sterk­fontein Caves as a must-see des­ti­na­tion when in South Africa, result­ing in the attrac­tion receiv­ing a Tri­pAd­vi­sor Cer­tifi­cate of Excellence.

The Cer­tifi­cate of Excel­lence is award­ed in recog­ni­tion of the pos­i­tive feed­back received from vis­i­tors post­ing reviews on the site.

The Sterk­fontein Caves offer vis­i­tors a glimpse into the excit­ing and colour­ful his­to­ry of the area and should def­i­nite­ly be on the itin­er­ary for any trav­ellers head­ing to South Africa. We are proud that the Caves have been recog­nised as wor­thy of the Tri­pAd­vi­sor Cer­tifi­cate of Excel­lence and believe this award will bring more feet into the Caves expos­ing, more peo­ple to the won­der that they are,” says Lind­say Mar­shall, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and mar­ket­ing man­ag­er at Maropeng.

Owned by the Uni­ver­si­ty of the Wit­wa­ter­srand, the Sterk­fontein Caves are world famous for fos­sil finds and dis­cov­er­ies, includ­ing Mrs Ples and Lit­tle Foot. 

The tours at the Sterk­fontein Caves, which start above ground and then take vis­i­tors deep into the caves, run every half hour, sev­en days a week.
