About Badplaas Cradle of Life

The Cradle of Life is an area where life is very much part and parcel of the environment. There is an impressive array of earthly animal species, including white lions, tigers, jaguars, pumas, leopards, cheetahs, Siberian wolves, hyenas and meerkats. There is also an absolute abundance of bird life including raptors and LBJ's for the birding enthusiast.


Accommodation at Badplaas Cradle of Life comprises fifteen thatched cottages, each designed to sleep four guests in comfort. Each chalet enjoys views over the picturesque valley and the far-off Mpumalanga Drakensberg Mountains.

Deluxe and Luxury Chalets
The Deluxe and Luxury chalets comprise two bedrooms each (the main bedroom has a double bed and en-suite bathroom / shower and the second bedroom has two single beds and a separate bathroom).

Each cottage has an open-plan kitchen with lounge and a big-screen TV. A spacious veranda overlooks dams and water features and the restaurant.

Standard Chalets
Standard Chalets also comprise two bedrooms each (the main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has two single beds and a separate bathroom). Each cottage has a sitting area, small kitchen and a TV.

Honeymoon Suite
The Executive/Honeymoon Suite has one bedroom, a private lounge, splash pool, Boma and outside shower and is the perfect option for a couple or corporate executive.


Indulge in dishes such as bone marrow, Itakane (salted lamb riblets), T-bone steaks or inkukhu (chicken quarters marinated in a peri peri sauce).

Delicious burgers, toasted sandwiches as well as fish and chips are just some of the favourite classics on the menu. Food that will appeal to children is also available.
