    One wishes one knows more about archeology when one pays a visit, but even to those without an intimate knowledge of the field, this cave and its very ancient beginnings presents a fascinating view of the history of humankind. The interpretation center has enough to introduce one to the varied history of the cave; for example, it might well have been the first place where fire was kindled! Those who have investigated its various layers of human habitation have, in some instances, spent a whole lifetime of research on barely more than a cubic metre of its treasures. Interesting, too, is that pollen discovered in the deepest layers reveals a whole history of food that nourished our ancestors, and the beginning of agriculture. Find a way to avoid the tedious and not very well-trained guide, and you will enjoy every minute.

    What a lovely gem, which are left to deteriorate so much, that soon, nothing will be left to be seen. The water are crystal clear with hundreds of fish in the pool. Garden is terribly neglected.

    The Truce Tree still stands and is beautiful to photograph. Unfortunately the area surrounding the Truce Tree is filthy and littered, as is all of Kuruman. Hardly a town you would want to visit.
