These include the epicentre, Johannesburg, as well as the historically and politically relevant Pretoria. One of the much smaller towns of this province is Tarlton. While little and secluded, Tarlton is the perfect base from which to see a host of exciting South African sights, thanks to its convenient locale.

The incredible Sterkfontein Caves are situated close to Tarlton, and are famous around the world for the fossils to which they have been home for millions of years. In fact, this entire area has been dubbed the Cradle of Humankind by many scientists, and is believed to have a history that dates back to between 20 and 30 million years.

The appeal of Tarlton lies in its serenity and the sense of calm that infuses every part of the visitors’ experiences here. Popular activities in the region include rock climbing, hiking and walking. Some of the nearby towns are Hartebeeshoek, Krugersdorp, Magaliesburg and Roodepoort.
