Come capture the spirit of Africa at Cradle Moon Lake Side Game Lodge. Set within the 1500-hectare Cradle Moon Conservancy, only a 35-minute drive from both Sandton and Pretoria.
We can offer a secure and pristine natural experience for both young and old as well as both the ultimate athletes and those just seeking a breath of fresh air. We are concentrating on restoring the indigenous fauna and flora to re-establish the natural Highveld biodiversity, this is our primary focus and we ask all athletes to respect the natural habitat.

Routes: With 3 distances to choose from, we are able to guarantee a secure and special experience for every level of athlete, and with varied terrain from forests to mountains, as well as being home to over 20 species of wild animals, including Rhino, Leopard, Eland, Kudu, Red Hartebeest, Black Wildebeest, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Duiker, Impala, Springbuck, Brown Hyena, Jackal, and Aardwolf.



This is not for the faint-hearted. It is technical and challenging.

The route features technical climbs and descents, forest sections and beautiful open savannah stretches.


The race features extra river frontage, multiple forests, and rocky sections. 

The route winds away from the lake in the direction of Beyers Naude Drive, before heading back down to the new “Spookhuis” section.


Fast-flowing tracks early into the route serve as the perfect way to get the blood pumping. This is the base route around the lodge with the best views of the cradle of humankind. Look out for giraffe and zebra on the trail.
