DNA research and archaeological discoveries has shown that Mossel Bay was always a very popular destination: All humans alive today descend from a small population that lived between 150,000 and 200,000 years ago. Archaeological research has shown that at least some of those people lived in Mossel Bay, in and around the caves at Pinnacle Point!
Jonathan Kaplan and Dr. Peter Nilssen initially identified the potential archaeological value of the earliest evidence for modern human behavior during an Archaeological Impact Assessment for the Pinnacle Point Golf Course and Casino development.
Now it is your turn to explore this short, rugged stretch of South African coastline with its breathtaking views and discoveries ever made regarding the origins of all people alive on earth today. Learn more about how your ancestors lived, ate, worked, played and went shopping (and all without Internet!). The caves are now accessible to small groups, either on a 1,5 hour tour or on a 3-4 hours tour. Bookings essential! More information and bookings on www.humanorigin.co.za.
