Lake Heritage, at the Cradle Moon Lodge is just outside Honeydew. Cradle Moon Lodge is a guest lodge and conference centre in a small game reserve. Take Beyers Naudé Drive travelling in a north-westerly direction away from Johannesburg. The Cradle Moon Lodge is approximately 15 kilometres from Johannesburg and takes about 20 minutes of drive-time. Expect a queue to get into the parking area, and leave ample time to ensure you are in time for your swim.

THE SWIM


WATER QUALITY

The water is clean but not clear. It tastes fine but visibility is restricted to about half-a-metre when in the water. A word of advice - do not swim too close to the bank as there tends to be submerged branches that could prove troublesome.



FACILITES

There is ample parking situated near the parking area that services the venue. However, this is some distance from the dam, so you will need to walk a reasonable distance. Once at the dam, there is grass and trees in abundance, making it very attractive for spectators. Due to the large number of competitors, the shady areas are at a premium so bring along some form of sun protection. The organisers arrange for a number of the chalets to be used as change rooms and ablution facilities. Hot meals and other refreshments are on sale.
