The Bushbabies Monkey Sanctuary

The Bushbabies Monkey Sanctuary

What You Will Experience

The Bushbabies Monkey Sanctuary is one
of only eight free-release primate sanctuaries
in the world. Covering approximately 7ha in
one of the many kloofs of the Magaliesberg
mountain range, the sanctuary is home to squirrel, spider and capuchin monkeys which were
previously raised as household pets or bred for pet trade.
Guests leave tours with the understanding that monkeys do not make good pets – monkeys will
always be better suited to a natural, free-living environment!

Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve

Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve

What You Will Experience

There are many ways to experience the Crocodile River, but Airboat Afrika must be one of the best gifts you can give yourself while you’re in The Cradle. Take in the breath-taking Magaliesburg
gorges of the River from the old road bridge downstream into the panoramic expanse of Hartbeespoort. It’s easy to ‘get lost’ in the magic on water, but don’t forget to take pics!

Brookwood Trout Estate Family Braai

Brookwood Trout Estate Family Braai

What You Will Experience

Drifting over wildlife on the safari flight is just one of the special memories you can add to your photo album after a hot air balloon ride with Air Ventures Africa. You could book a ride for ‘just-the two-of-us’ if it’s romance you’re after, or even the bumper-balloon for 16 if you’re celebrating your birthday. Qualified pilots and friendly staff who serve mimosa’s on arrival and interesting snippets while in-flight, make the ‘crack-of-dawn’ wake-up call worthwhile. And don’t miss the scrumptious buffet breakfast served afterwards at one of the Cradle’s most prestigious spots.

The restaurant within the Garden has a camera on the nest 24/7, and if you’re lucky, you may just spot a bit of social activity from these aloof but majestic birds.While 25ha are maintained as garden, the rest is an untouched nature reserve, with breath-taking cliffs made of bands of quartzite and shale rocks that tell the story of the incredible geological history that formed them.
