Imagine a vista of pristine African Bushveld as far as the eye can see; a luxury venue located in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. Imagine a venue that is hidden from view on arrival by a low rocky ridge. Now imagine all of this combined! Imagination truly becomes reality in the shape, form and offering of the Cradle Boutique Hotel — a spectacular wedding setting that is only a stone’s throw away from Johannesburg and Pretoria. An authentic African Bushveld backdrop merges beautifully with the modern, open-plan design of the function venues, creating the impression of an outdoor setting.
