18. Cradle of Humankind
The Cradle of Humankind is one of the World Heritage Sites named by UNESCO. It is located about 50 kilometers away from Johannesburg, right in the Gauteng province. The site features a complex of limestone caves where a 2 million year old fossil has been discovered. The site is called as such since it is said to have produced a large number of human fossils, dating back from several million years ago.
