Accommodation at the Cradle of Life comprises fifteen thatched cottages, each designed to accommodate four occupants in comfort. Set against the hillside, each chalet enjoys views over the picturesque valley below and far-off Mpumalanga Drakensberg mountains.

The word Cradle signifying the early beginnings of life on earth. Records of Earth’s earliest life forms, including microfossils, stromatolites, biomats and other organically derived material have been discovered in the adjacent Barberton mountains which have been dated at some 3600 million years of age.

Life is very much part and parcel of the environment here, not only ancient, but modern too. The most impressive array of earthly animal species, exotic and indigenous, have been gathered together at the Cradle of Life. These include white lions, tigers, jaguars, pumas, leopards, cheetahs, Siberian wolves, hyenas and . There is also an absolute abundance of bird life including raptors and LBJ's for the birding enthusiast.

Our clean restrooms, and convenience store provide a welcome break on a long journey and our spacious restaurant will provide a range of delicious meals for travelers wanting to take a longer break on their journey.

Our stay at the Cradle of Life was great... We enjoyed the time we had at your establishment. The breakfasts were lovely too!
For the first time we saw the animals closely as they were being fed.
I can mention though, that the utilities in our cottage could have been much better.

I have every intention to return, to just chill at your lovely venue, with its magnificent views.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

There is potential at the Cradle but both our chalets were missing an enormous amount of equipment/crockery/cutlery/lights/bedside tables/furniture etc
No outside furniture to sit next to braai/fire.
Staff are friendly and accommodating BUT chalets are definitely incomplete.
Abandoned pool construction is an eyesore

Okay. 3 out of 5
