Mountain Biking Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge

****   Add a review
#15 of 79 mountain bike trails in South Africa
#6,301 in the world

Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge is situated in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind. The routes wind through and over the hills and valleys surrounding Lake Heritage. Share the trails with over 300 heads of game, including Impala, Springbok, Wildebeest, Blesbok and more!

Blue Route:
The trail includes Single track, Jeep track and Bermed corners. The route has easy ''escape routes'' back to the lodge. This trail is perfect for beginner riders to hone their skills and perfect bike control.

Yellow Route:
Extra river frontage, multiple forests and rocky sections await the riders. The route features a lot of singletrack and will take longer than an average route to complete as there are long climbs and technical decents. The route winds away from the lake in the direction of Beyers Naude Drive before heading back down to the new "Spookhuis" section. A long climb awaits you before making your way back to the lodge.

Red Route:
The red route is our most technical route and is only for advanced riders. Riders cross the bridge at the Lake Heritage dam wall and is immediately greeted by a sharp climb up a concrete jeep track. The route features technical climbs, decents, switchbacks and tight forest sections. PLEASE NOTE: Advanced riders only. No one will be allowed to cut or veer off track. Any persons caught doing this will be asked to leave the Red route immediately.

Other activities at the lodge include: Game drives, boat cruises, guided walks, restaurant and bar facilities.
