Rhino and Lion Nature Reserve & Bothongo Wonder Cave Self Catering Accommodation In Cradle of Humankind

The Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve, situated within the Cradle of Humankind, is a privately owned game reserve covering some 1200 hectares with over 650 heads of game from over 25 different species of antelope, big game, predators and birds, as well as some very rare and endangered species. The management and staff welcome you and trust that you will enjoy your visit.



No electricity - solar lights and gas only

The Rest Camp consists of three private, fully-equipped chalets.  Each chalet sleeps four people and, on request, a maximum of two further mattresses per chalet can be provided at an additional cost.

The chalets are equipped with gas appliances (hot water, fridge and 3 plate stove only), and solar lights, but no electricity or telephones.  Visitors need only supply their own food and refreshments.  The chalets are serviced once per day.

The Rest Camp has its own private swimming pool, lapa area and jungle gym for extra-small children.

Features include open-plan kitchen, lounge/dining room area, two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, veranda and braai facility, swimming pool, small jungle gym, small communal lapa, gas only, no electricity.

Log Cabins

For those looking for something a bit more contemporary, we present the five private, fully equipped log cabins overlooking the Lion Cmp.

Each Log Cabin offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms, ideally serving 4 people, but up to 2 additional residents can be accommodated at additional cost.  Have a braai, or just unwind in the Jacuzzi, surrounded by natural beauty and the occasional sound of a lion's roar.


Day visitors can explore the reserve in their own vehicles along well-maintained gravel roads suited for any vehicle, with a few branching 4x4-exclusive roads for the more adventurous explorer. A leisurely drive through the reserve will take approximately 2-3 hours and usually ends with a stop at the Kiosk / Day Visitors Centre where many braai and picnic facilities are available, along with the Boma Restaurant and Croc Pub, Children's Play Park, Wild Life Centre and Reptile Park. Other facilities include the incredible Wondercave, the Neck & Deck Café situated just outside the entrance of the reserve where one can feed a giraffe, the Breeding Centre, Hippo Pools, Thatch Café and the Cradle Bike Park.

With such a variety of fun-filled adventure, we guarantee there's something for everyone!

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
