Your gateway to the Cradle of Humankind.

With the option of king, queen or single size beds our spacious suites all offer comfortably at affordable prices.<br /><br />The lodge has a licensed pub, a dining facility where 3 course meals are prepared (booking essential - prior to arrival) and a pool, all situated on 36 hectares of rolling Savannah veld and indigenous trees. Our garden is home to a number of bird species and if you are lucky, game can be seen on the adjacent game reserve from your breakfast table. The three main centers of Johannesburg, Pretoria and Rustenburg are easily accessible from our lodge, making us the ideal base for Soccer fans.<br /><br />The conference facility is equipped to host up to 25 people for day Conferences and up to 16 over night sharing or eight single.

"Place very tranquil for a break . We had a nice quiet weekend. What I did not like we slept on single beds, for a couple it's a no. No bedside mat. No mirror in the bathroom.A turn off its when we were about to leave and told we owing the balance. I paid all the money through Safari, I don't know how the system works apparently it was not showing. They had to phone the ownerto sort this out"

"My partner and I had a wonderful stay with The Cradle lodge.. We had a very lovely welcome, our room was nice and clean, it was very warm and everything I had requested prior to our arrival was done... That pleased me alot. The staff were sweet and very friendly, and breakfast was also tastey.. Though I feel they could have changed the manue, as we had the same thing every morning.. Our room was cleaned daily.. We were very sad when we had to check out and we are most definately planning to go back soon... Oh and it was very quiet and peace, exactly what we needed.."

"I went to The Cradle Lodge with a group of friends for the weekend.The rooms were beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable. We were told that the place was undergoing some renovations but it was kept very clean and tidy despite those renovations.The staff is friendly and they made sure that our stay was as comfortable as possible. They cooked pap and gravy for us when we told them we wanted to braai. And they happily provided us with everything we needed for the braai :)The boma allowed us to sit around the fire and keep warm despite the cold winter's night.I would gladly go back to The Cradle Lodge."

"Our stay at The Cradle Lodge was very pleasant. The room was decent and spacious. The breakfast was filling and came freshly prepared.My only gripe was that our room was south facing which resulted in it being quite cold."
