The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site, in the vicinity of the Muldersdrift area, is Gauteng province’s only World Heritage site and is world renowned for its fossil discoveries such as Mrs Ples, Little Foot, the Taung Child and the more recent new hominin species Australopithecus sediba

 
The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site Management Authority, together with Gauteng Tourism, have been working with key stakeholders at instituting programmes aimed at curbing criminal incidents. In the spirit of tackling the fight against crime in the area in a united fashion, business, government and local residents are working side by side and sharing crime fighting tips as requested by the Gauteng MEC for Economic Development Nkosipendule Kolisile in his recent statement expressing concerns on the incidents in the area.
 
The tourism safety and assistance programme in the area is one of the successful initiatives aimed at ensuring heightened visibility with on-bicycle patrols and on the spot assistance to any victims of crime. Safe, participative communities and neighbourhoods are not only crucial for the wellbeing of all, but they are also critical for creating an environment that generates economic growth, which in turn assists in creating decent jobs in the province.

Gauteng Tourism Authority recognizes and will continue to support the crime-fighting efforts by the local police station, businesses and residents in the Muldersdrift area. The safety of  residents, travellers, and our travel trade are a priority and we remain confident that the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site will remain a must-visit attraction for all visitors to Gauteng, especially as the summer holiday season approaches.
