Maropeng Easter celebrations
Easter at Maropeng is always an egg-citing experience, especially for the little ones, and it makes for a remarkable family day out with plenty of activities for adults, too. This Easter, while egg hunts and catching up with the Easter bunny keep the kids entertained, the grown-ups can enjoy a beer garden, a live outdoor theatre performance and lovely meals created by our gastronomy trained Executive Chef Peter Langa. The tours of Maropeng are great for young and old alike, and visitors can explore the exhibition at their leisure. While you find out what you don’t know at the Maropeng exhibition, you can also make a day of it with a tour through the Sterkfontein Caves, only 10kms away.
