Cradle Nature Reserve
Lonely Planet review
About halfway between Pretoria and Johannesburg is the Cradle Nature Reserve , a more upmarket take on the wildlife experience, with wildlife walks and drives, and palaeontological tours. Home base here is the Cradle Restaurant , offering international cuisine, a cocktail bar, a log fire in winter and one of the best restaurant views in the country. Accommodation is offered in charming self-catering thatched cottages at the Forest Camp .
