Please Note: Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge is NOT a self catering venue. No food or drinks may be brought on site.

In the heart of the Cradle Moon Conservancy is the spectacular 32 hectare Cradle Moon Lake which is home to numerous species of fish, birds, reptiles and many more!

The clean water of the Crocodile River ensures the lake lends itself to be the best open water swimming venue in Gauteng. Along with the swimmers, paddlers and rowers also frequent the lake for training purposes. The Hi-Tec Water Course is marked by buoys indicating 500m, 1000m and 1500m courses.

With the surrounding trails and central location in the Cradle of Humankind, both MTB and Road Duathletes and Triathletes see this as the ideal training location.  

Activities on Cradle Moon Lake include:

  • Swimming

  • Canoeing

  • Rowing

  • Paddling

  • Stand Up Paddling

  • Fly Fishing
