Maropeng Conference Centre

Boasting all of the necessary conferencing facilities is one thing. Being able to provide delegates with a unique and memorable conference experience is something very few venues are able to do. A mere 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, Maropeng – The Official Visitor Center to The Cradle of Humankind, is one of these rare venues. Situated in the scenic and tranquil surrounds, it offers an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city making it easy to understand why it is fast becoming the versatile conferencing venue of choice for groups hailing from Gauteng; Pretoria and as far off as Cape Town and KZN. The Cradle of Humankind is one of only eight World Heritage sites in South Africa and the only one in Gauteng, declared so because of its contribution to our understanding of human origin and the evolution of humanity.. In fact – more human origin fossils have been found here than any other place on Earth. Facilities include an award-winning visitor centre, a 4-star boutique hotel, conference facilities, an outdoor amphitheatre housing up to 10000 people, and four restaurants. Maropeng offers the option of customised packages which could include tours of both Sterkfontein Caves and Maropeng visitor’s center; teambuilding activities; star gazing with an astronomer; a visit to surrounding attractions and offers to privatise their hotel for your group’s stay, to name a few. A ‘one stop shop’ ensures that planning a conference directly is made easy for anyone. The versatile Tumulus building has expansive open areas that can be transformed from a blank canvas to a dramatic platform for product launches, events, corporate functions, exhibitions, displays and showcases. For events hosting more than 320 guests, a marquee can be set up in the grounds at Maropeng. Maropeng offer full catering from the kitchens of gastronomy trained Executive Chef – Peter Langa. Kosher and Halaal meals can also be arranged. With its breathtaking views of the Magaliesberg and Witwatersberg mountain ranges, the Tumulus Restaurant serves buffet lunches or plated menus, group size dependent.

The 4-star boutique hotel has 14 twin executive studio rooms, one of which has been designed with wheelchair access, and 10 king executive studio rooms.
