About Us

Maropeng Bou­tique Hotel

The Maropeng Bou­tique Hotel, with its breath­tak­ing views of the Wit­wa­ters­berg and Mag­a­lies­berg ranges, is the epit­o­me of lux­u­ry accom­mo­da­tion in the Cra­dle of Humankind. It offers 24 bed­rooms, sleep­ing up to 48 people.

Opened in mid-2006, the bou­tique hotel is a five-minute walk from Maropeng and 10km (six miles) from the Sterk­fontein Caves. Enjoy a rest­ful night’s sleep in one of the 10 king or 13 twin rooms, or the ful­ly equipped room for dis­abled persons.

Our hotel is ide­al for a roman­tic get­away; for exec­u­tives seek­ing a con­ve­nient con­fer­ence venue with accom­mo­da­tion not too far out of town; for local vis­i­tors want­i­ng a short escape to refresh their souls; or for inter­na­tion­al tourists want­i­ng to see some of the best tourist attrac­tions South Africa has to offer.

All of our rooms are non-smok­ing and our room rate includes free high-speed inter­net, air con­di­tion­ing, a deli­cious hot break­fast, free park­ing, and access to the pool, restau­rant and bar, as well as wheel­chair access.

Hominin House

Hominin House, the bud­get accom­mo­da­tion facil­i­ty at Maropeng, pro­vides the per­fect venue for team-build­ing events, youth camps and school groups, and recent upgrades have only served to enhance the experience.

Wher­ev­er pos­si­ble, the upgrades to Hominin House were done accord­ing to sus­tain­able build­ing prin­ci­ples, using ​“green” mate­ri­als, and steps were tak­en to reduce ener­gy usage and waste. Exhi­bi­tion ele­ments that high­light sus­tain­abil­i­ty issues are placed through­out the facil­i­ty, allow­ing Hominin House to be more than just an accom­mo­da­tion venue – it’s an edu­ca­tion­al site as well.

In addi­tion to the exist­ing dor­mi­to­ry accom­mo­da­tion, which can sleep 120 peo­ple, Hominin House now sports six en-suite rooms for teach­ers or group lead­ers, an all-pur­pose hall and an amphithe­atre firepit. The din­ing area has also been enclosed, mak­ing it more com­fort­able dur­ing cold­er weath­er con­di­tions and turn­ing it into a mul­ti­pur­pose room that can be used as an addi­tion­al class­room or break­away facil­i­ty when required.

Thanks to these addi­tions and ren­o­va­tions, guests are guar­an­teed a com­fort­able stay at Hominin House. Teach­ers or group lead­ers will appre­ci­ate the pri­va­cy pro­vid­ed by their own rooms and en-suite bath­rooms. The new hall pro­vides guests with more space for addi­tion­al edu­ca­tion­al and team-build­ing activ­i­ties. Plus, sit­ting around the firepit will encour­age some down time and con­ver­sa­tion, and affords guests the oppor­tu­ni­ty to expe­ri­ence the beau­ti­ful night skies at Maropeng. Pri­vate stargaz­ing evenings can be arranged, which make for a per­fect after-din­ner activity.
