HHaving all of the necessary conferencing facilities is one thing. Being able to provide guests and delegates with a unique and memorable experience is something very few venues are able to do. A mere 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg or Pretoria, Maropeng is one of these rare venues. Situated in the scenic and tranquil Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, it offers an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city making it easy to understand why it is fast becoming the niche conferencing venue of choice for groups. The Cradle area is one of only eight World Heritage sites in South Africa and the only one in Gauteng, declared because of its contribution to our understanding of humanity. Thousands of fossils have been found in the 53 000 hectares area – more than any other place on Earth. With its panoramic surroundings and unique tour packages Maropeng is ideally suited to those wanting the comfort of luxury 4-star accommodation together with state-of-the-art conferencing facilities. Maropeng also allows delegates’ access to a host of unique, fun, informative, and team-building activities to fit all pockets and individual requirements. Vincent Nettmann, Maropeng’s resident astronomer, is available to take delegates or guests on an extraordinary astronomical journey with Maropeng’s stargazing evenings Facilities include an award-winning visitor centre, a 24-bedroom 4-star hotel, conference facilities, an outdoor amphitheatre housing up to 10000 people, and budget accommodation, with separate conference facilities, at Hominin House and four restaurants. Our latest addition is an new park area name Stone Park. Adorned with indigenous trees and plants and exquisitely lit at night. It is the ideal venue for corporate events. Maropeng offers companies the option of special customised packages which can be arranged for groups. Any of these tours can be integrated into a package for a corporate. These can be tailored to include a braai at the hotel for example or enjoying sundowners at the Caves. The state-of-the-art conference facilities are housed in the Tumulus building in which the main exhibition is situated. Encompassing three conference rooms that can also be opened to house larger groups of up to 320 The versatile Tumulus building has expansive open areas that can be transformed from a blank canvas to a dramatic platform for product launches, events, corporate functions, exhibitions, displays and showcases. For events hosting more than 320 guests, a marquee can be set up in the grounds at Maropeng. Maropeng offer full catering from the kitchens of gastronomy trained Executive Chef – Peter Langa. Kosher and Halaal meals can also be arranged. With its breathtaking views of the Magaliesberg and Witwatersberg mountain ranges, the Tumulus Restaurant serves buffet lunches or plated menus, group size dependent. The restaurant deck can also be covered with a Bedouin tent, which then turns it into the perfect setting for larger events. A grassed amphitheatre in the Maropeng grounds can be used to set up a stage and a grandstand with seating for up to 10000 people – ideal for concerts and large events. The 4-star boutique hotel has 14 twin executive studio rooms, one of which has been designed with wheelchair access, and 10 king executive studio rooms. All have en-suite bathrooms with separate shower, air-conditioning, mini-bar (which can be stocked on request) and safe. Public facilities include a stylish yet cosy lounge with a fireplace, a chic restaurant and bar leading out onto a patio, and a swimming pool with a breathtaking view. A distinguishing feature of the Maropeng Hotel is attention to detail from the architecture to the smallest finishes. One of the advantages of smaller niche groups are they can take over the whole hotel and virtually make it their own.
