Muldersdrift is a picturesque rural area situated between Johannesburg and the Magaliesburg mountain area. It forms part of the Crocodile Ramble, a scenic tourist route generally regarded as the most popular of all the craft routes around South Africa. Muldersdrift also forms part of Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site:
With its wealth of tourism establishments and more than 40 wedding venues and conference centres, Muldersdrift is known for its fine accommodation, restaurants, spas and health resorts. It is often referred to as the “wedding capital” of Gauteng. The area has acquired a reputation for being an arts and cultural hub with a number of home craft industries with a number of potters, artists, brewers, and astronomers based in the area.
The Wonder Cave near Muldersdrift is one of the show caves of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. It is the third largest cave in South Africa and one of the world’s richest hominid fossil sites. The Cradle of Humankind was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. The Sterkfontein Caves, also in the area, contain the discovery of a 2.3-million-year-old fossil Australopithecus africanus (nicknamed “Mrs Ples”) found in 1947 by Robert Broom and John T. Robinson. The Maropeng Visitor Centre is an exciting, world-class exhibition, focusing on the development of humans and our ancestors of the past few million years.
Other popular tourism establishments in the area include the Krugersdorp Game Reserve, Lesedi Cultural Village, Hartbeespoort Dam and the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens. Muldersdrift has become a very popular area for cycling, with hundreds of cyclists enjoying the area over the weekends.
