With scientist, explorer and internationally acclaimed author Michael Tellinger

The best kept secret on the way to The Kruger National Park, is in the Town of Waterval Boven, which lies in the heart of millions of ancient stone ruins that cover large parts of southern Africa, dating back over 200,000 years.


Long before the Egyptians saw the light of day, this vanished civilisation worshipped the Sun, they carved the first Sphinx and Horus Bird, built an ancient calendar aligned with Orion, (ADAM’S CALENDAR), and they were obsessed with gold. Their mysterious tools and artefacts indicate that they had an advanced knowledge of the laws of nature and they used SOUND & FREQUENCY as a tool – this is why we call this the first Silicone Valley. Archaeological finds connect these ruins to ancient civilisations like the Egyptians, Phoenicians, Dravidian’s, The Maya, Romans, Greeks and the Anunnaki gods of the Sumerians. This is an unforgettable treat for those who seek deeper knowledge and truth about our human origins. And for those who have seen sites like Stonehenge, The Giza Pyramids or Machu Pichu; the Stone Circles of South Africa will complete your journey.



This unique private museum holds a large display of mysterious tool and artefacts that expose an advanced vanished civilisation dating back over 200,000 years. Michael Tellinger’s research has attracted the attention of top scientist from around the world and several of the tools and are being studied by researchers in research facilities in the USA – making these discoveries much more relevant than simply archaeological finds. The collection of tools and artefacts from around southern Africa connects this vanished civilisation to other well-known cultures like the Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, Dravidian’s, and even the Incas.


Take a walk among the largest cluster of ancient stone ruins anywhere in the world. Discover the REAL CRADLE OF HUMANKIND – now recognised as such by a growing number of researchers from around the world. Experience the deep mystery and find the true purpose of these ancient ruins – that were not dwellings for people, nor for animals. Marvel at the sheer magnitude of work that went into constructing more than 10 million Stone Circles throughout southern Africa – constructed by a civilisation we knew nothing about, until the ground-breaking research of Michael Tellinger exposed it all. Millions of stone circles have been destroyed, and continue being destroyed by SAPPI, MONDI, road works, town development, road construction, farming, and other unconscious human activity. But a growing number of farmers and land owners have recognised the critical importance of these ruins and have started a process of maintenance and protection.


Adam’s Calendar, is most likely the most significant and oldest archaeological site in South Africa and possibly the world. It is the oldest working example of sun calendar. It connects this vanished civilisation to those of Great Zimbabwe and the Giza Pyramids. This site is known by African Shamans as “Inzalo Y’langa” or “Birthplace of the Sun”, where humanity was created by the gods. Sacred ceremonies were held at this site until the 1950s. Some refer to this site as the Stonehenge of South Africa – but its significance and age go back well over 250,000 years – close to the accepted origins of humankind.
