We have partnered with what3words to make getting to Maropeng and the Sterkfontein Caves even easier!

Technology company what3words has mapped the world into a grid of 3m x 3m squares, and given each one a unique what3words address - made of three words from the dictionary.

What does this mean for you?

It is a simple way to talk about location and get you were you need to go.

The system covers the entire world, never needs updating, and works offline. A what3words address is a human-friendly way to share very precise locations with other people.It is optimised for voice input and contains built-in error prevention to immediately identify and correct input mistakes.
