Maropeng and iHominin are offering budding palaeontologists a rare opportunity to explore a 1.5-million-year-old fossil site. Coopers Cave, 1.2km from the famous Sterkfontein Caves near Johannesburg, is a relatively newly discovered fossil site, where several species of animals and a number of stone tools have been found.
The days activities include a walking tour, an interactive fossil and site talk, exploring a cave, a chance to look for fossils, and learning how to make stone tools.
