Cradle Moon Game Lodge really exceeded our expectations. The animals are a winner. The food was excellent. The place being close by saved us lots of money. Plus having to travel long distances over Easter. The boat trip was very enjoyable bringing us even closer to nature. The guide is very knowledgeable and pleasant. The experience really took us away from everyday's stress. The service was very friendly.

May be you can just add a little fridge to the coffee station, everything was good though. The breakfast was excellent and so was the dinner. Your hospitality was also excellent, thanks for a enjoyable weekend!!

We had a very great experience and the facilities were fantastic. The staff gave us a warm homely welcome to Heia Ranch. The rooms were clean, well furnished, space was very good in the rooms and best part is that we were staying with Giraffe's, Springbok and other game roaming around us! The best part is that we walked with our kids amongst the game and did not feel unsafe, loved it. Sitting on the porch having sundowners, watching the sunset and reflecting after a day of fun with the kids in the bush and splash in the pool, before the Zebra's came to visit the pool area, we were looking forward to the following day of adventure ahead of us. A true outdoor Game experience for our Family. Having toddlers below the age of 4 who woke up at 6am to go and see the Game sleeping outside our chalet, the calm view of Lake Heritage and our strolls along the lake made our stay even better. And all in the backyard of Muldersdrift. The service in the restaurant and the vibe at dinner and breakfast is well worth the experiece. The buffett had everything to offer with a well thought out menu giving a Lekker Taste of Africa :-)The restaurant host and our waitress made sure we were looked after well. Heia Safari Ranch is on my list of favourite places to visit again.
