The Cradle Restaurant

What do you do on a Sunday morning when you want to get outside and the blue sky is beckoning?
Especially when the urban dwelling feels a bit stuffy in this heat.

The one thing that is great about living in Johannesburg in South Africa: We do not have to drive very far to get to the outdoors...

The Cradle Restaurant - sitting on the deck

One of the places we wanted to check out for a long time is The Cradle Restaurant at The Cradle of Humankind near Lanseria.

The ride to and from the restaurant in a golf cart was a definite highlight as well!

Just one note of caution: The breakfast buffet is fantastic, but it is a bit expensive!
(Especially when the budget is a bit low this time of the month... Ouch!)

Next time we will go a bit earlier to still get an option for the A La Carte Menu and to visit The Cradle of Humankind at Maropeng, which is nearby.

Which places do you recommend in the Johannesburg area if you want to get a bit of fresh air?


  1. That looks like a great place to visit. Here I just need to go to any restaurant that overlooks the sea and I am happy.

    1. Wow, your lucky, I'm jealous of that.

  2. Oh it is a fantastic place but yes, very expensive

  3. Have been there but not to restaurant. And Maropeng. I think zoo also good option and lion park. Love your pics and looks like you had a good time despite the prices.


I love to hear your comments :D
