About The Cradle Lodge

Your gateway to the Cradle of Humankind. Off the R563, nestled on a gentle slope overlooking the Cradle of Humankind, our lodge is just a few minutes away from a host of activities offered within the World Heritage Site. We offer eight beautifully appointed suites, some with their own private patios ideal for an intimate romantic dinner. With the option of king, queen or single size beds our spacious suites all offer comfortably at affordable prices.

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.

The conference facility is equipped to host up to 25 people for day Conferences and up to 16 over night sharing or eight single. Come and enjoy our facility and friendly staff.

              Tea Station- Our room had only tea bags and no sugar, coffee nor milk.Room features- The rooms are described as having DTVS, however, there are no television sets so how can the host indicate that they have DSTV; the room did not even have a bin never mind the bar fridge which had been claimed to be in the room.Breakfast- The so called fruit salad was made up of apples and bananas with juice. Like honestly this was just below standard and have never ever in my travelling experience being served this combination ever, food got finished and had to wait for the kitchen to prepare some more. Sund...

              Our stay at Cradle Lodge was sadly disappointing. It has such great potential but is in need of some serious TLC. Whikst overall clean and served itsvpurpise to put our head on a pillow for a night, it definitely needs some work. The room had no kettle or coffee dispite having cups. The aircon wasnt working and they had an extremely loud fan that you couldnt keep on during the night. The bathroom had no hand soap at the basin. These little things could make all the difference.

              Good stay, more attention to detail if you want more business. No soaps, no complimentary waters in the fridge. Dustbins in bathrooms etc Man in charge of breakfast was exceptional.

              The stay was awesome. The gentleman that was on duty was very nice and helpful. He accommodated us with all our requests and was very friendly. He was a great host.
