Have you ever wondered where we, human beings, came from? What led to this evolutionary revolution on Planet Earth? All of the answers can be found in one place: the Cradle of Humankind.

These findings have led to the 'Out of Africa' theory, estimating that most human ancestors originated from one general spot… Africa.
