Public transportation to the Cradle of Humankind area is limited, so using a rental car or taking an organized tour is best. Some hotels in the area will arrange transportation on request. The Cradle of Humankind is about a 90-minute drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, but isn’t well signposted, so use a GPS or download instructions on how to get there from the Maropeng website if you don't visit on a guided tour.
