South Africa’s Garden Route, which stretches along the country’s coastline from east to west, is packed full of hidden treasures and local delights – appealing to outdoor lovers, history fundis, adrenaline junkies, arts and crafts fans and foodies. In fact, whatever you fancy, the Garden Route and the Western Cape probably has it!
While on holiday down the Garden Route, make sure to set a day aside for the fascinating Point of Human Origins Tour, based in Mossel Bay. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, up for a little adventure, appreciate history and in search of an ‘out of the box’ activity to do, this tour will definitely have you captivated.
Pinnacle Point Caves in Mossel Bay have been declared a Provincial Heritage Site – an early step in the process of having them proclaimed a World Heritage Site.
These important archaeological sites have now been made accessible to small groups of no more than 12 people under the direction of professional archaeologist Dr Peter Nilssen, who will guide you through the tour. The entire experience is divided into two parts: an introductory lecture, and a field trip to the Pinnacle Point Caves.
These exciting, stimulating, half-day excursions will change the way you think about our origins as modern, thinking people.
