Makapansgat and the wolkberg

Kevin will be passing near to Makapansgat today, a world heritage site. The story of Makapan and his 3 000 followers is well known, but here’s another story about a pebble and what happened at the caves 3 million years ago.

This is also the area that John Buchan, the author of Prestor John, explored and loved, using the beautiful valleys and mountains of the Wolkberg as the backdrop of the book.
