Last night in S.A”

My husband and I stayed here for just one night after flying from Cape Town then to Zanzibar. We arrived very late but the staff were great picking us up in a golf buggy with all our luggage and taking us to our beautiful tent. Unfortunately we had to leave very early for our flight but woke up to an amazing view and lovely breakfast. Would definitely recommend staying here rather than an airport hotel as you feel like you’re still enjoying the South African wilderness for just one more night! And it’s only 20 mins in an Uber to Lanseria airport!

Very relaxing stayy”

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cradle Boutique hotel for our 10yr anniversary. The food is absolutely incredible - we had both dinner and breakfast at the lodge and WOW! The rooms are spacious, clean and only lacked decent coffee as only Nescafe instant coffee is supplied (you can order room service). The sound from the kitchen fan was also a bit dissapointing, so suggest when booking - request for a room further away.

Memorable relaxed stay”

We travelled as a family and booked 2x luxury suites. The rooms are spacious and the cleanliness of the rooms top-notch. We were very fortunate that many of the game on the property could be viewed from our patio. We chose to have all our meals at the onsite restaurant and loved every bite. The happy staff are very friendly and well trained, good service with a smile. Grant who took us on a game drive is very knowledgable and I would recommend going out on a drive with him. The ladies who did the messages in our rooms were professional and friendly and added to a much needed relaxed stay. Although we only stayed for 2x nights we returned home revived and ready to face 2021. Thank you to the management and staff of Cradle Boutique Hotel for making our stay special and memorable.

Lovely Views ”

Stunning Views in room 29!! Food was delicious!! The french toast was super yum!! As a runner, you would need to run on the main road outside the hotel as nowhere to really go apart from a small path past the huts themselves. Had a wonderful walking tour with Grant one of the guides and got to see a few lovely animals and plants around the area!! Also super close to the Lion and Rhino Park where there are lots of animals to see. I will go back again!
