Photographer's Note

In 1936 Robert Broom found the first Australopithecus-fossil in the Sterkfontein Caves. That was followed in 1947 by the BIG ONE. Robert Broom found a million-year-old woman skeleton called Plesianthropus transvaalensis.

"Little Foot" a 3,5 million year old skeleton was then found in 1994 by Ron Clarke.

As I said in my previous photo if you think you will see skeletons and stuff in the caves you will be dead wrong. It is just a normal cave. Thus for the price of R40 and a hour in the caves it is not worth it.

The photo shows that in some parts of the caves you will have to duck and crawl in some parts of the tour.
