The Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge is one of the most popular attractions in Gauteng, only a 30 minute drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.

In the tranquil African bushveld we offer an unique African ambience with the experience of mystical Africa. Zebra, Wildebeast, Impala, Blessbuck, Springbuck and our Giraffe family (with a baby) roam freely around the hotel grounds.

The attractive Hotel Complex and Conference Centre consist of thatched stone buildings that are surrounded by beautifully landscaped lawns. Enjoy free wi-fi throughout the complex and ample safe parking.

The Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge Restaurant is a picturesque venue for superb dining with large windows that overlook the swimming pool and Lake Heritage. Our Zebras use the swimming pool as their watering hole to the delight of the restaurant guests. Open Daily for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.

For a good nights sleep enjoy the comfort in one of our two bed-roomed thatched bungalows; all with en-suite bathroom and a lovely balcony.
