About Cradle Boutique Hotel

Our Social Responsibility

Welcome to the Cradle Boutique Hotel, where education and conservation are at the heart of everything we do.

As part of the Greater Cradle Nature Reserve – owned by The Cradle Foundation – our focus is on preserving and protecting the cultural, paleoanthropological and natural heritage of this significant part of the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site.

We believe that education and conservation go hand in hand, which is why we run workshops for both our hotel staff and local school children, to help them understand the importance of preserving this UNESCO World Heritage Site. By staying with us, you become a part of our mission to ensure that the Greater Cradle Nature Reserve is protected for future generations to enjoy.

One of our key educational tools is the Malapa Museum, built in partnership with renowned paleoanthropologist Lee Berger’s Foundation for Exploration, The Cradle Foundation and National Geographic.

The Malapa Museum Experience takes visitors on a journey into the past, exploring some of the most important discoveries that have made this region famous for helping us understand humankind’s deep African origins.

When you stay at the Cradle Boutique Hotel, not only do you get to experience the comfort and luxury of our eco-friendly rooms, but you also become a custodian of the origins of man. All profits from the hotel and its restaurant are fed into supporting projects run through The Cradle Foundation, so you can relax and unwind knowing that you’re making a positive impact on the world around us.

Join us in our mission to preserve and protect the cultural and natural heritage of the Cradle of Humankind.
