The Cradle Restaurant is architecturally magnificent with extensive outdoor seating and retractable glass and steel doors that literally let the outside in. Its long, wide verandah provides diners with a 180° view of the game-filled valley below, the rolling Magaliesberg hills, and the vast African sky. A well-stocked wine cellar and bar, plus private dining rooms, completes the facility.
The restaurant is made for long, lazy lunches, drinks, and dinner at the end of the work week. You’re also able to take a splendid picnic lunch away with you in a basket (complete with an ice bucket to keep your drinks cold) and sit in a grassy patch in the shade of the white Stinkwood trees next to the Motsetse stream.
This popular bush hotel, situated on 7000 hectares of a private nature reserve in the Cradle of Humankind, offers endless opportunities, experiences and unforgettable memories.
