Return to the origin of the human race by heading to this heritage site in Johannesburg. Home to expertly preserved fossil-bearing caves, the Cradle of Humankind boasts a record of human evolution spanning over the past 4 million years. A whopping 40% of the world’s known human-ancestor fossils can be found here – talk about going back to your roots! Take a guided tour of the impressive site and see the previously undiscovered “Homo Naledi” species of humanoid, or go and check out the famed Australopithecus Africanus skull, Mrs Ples. Either way, your insta-feed will thank you and so will your sense of culture and history.
