Raptor Retreat is an owner managed game lodge, offering luxurious accommodation and excellent service.
We currently have three private lodges: the Elephant and the Buffalo Lodge as well as the Squirrel Suite. Each air-conditioned room has high thatched ceilings and a huge, built-in king-size bed as well as a large sliding door that opens onto a private deck with double recliners. The deck is nestled in amongst the trees giving you the feeling of being right in the thick of the bush.
We have one self-catering unit - the Hippo Cottage - that offers an exclusive experience for those that just like to do things on their own. There are two airconditioned bedrooms with on-suite bathrooms in this units that can sleep four people sharing. If you don't feel like cooking, you can add meals to your stay during the booking process. The Hippo Cottage also has it's own private Boma with braai facilities to enjoy your evening meals under the African skies.

Area Information:

This unspoiled corner of South Africa is renowned for its abundance of wildlife, mountainous scenery, indigenous forests, cascading waterfalls and diverse cultures. With the possibility of having the Big 5 on your doorstep and an abundance of bird life, we offer early morning or late afternoon informative game drives with and experienced field guide, promising you much more than just a game-viewing experience. Take in the breath-taking views of the Oliphant's River Valley whilst sipping on a refreshment and savouring the local snacks. For the more energetic, professionally guided bush & bird walks, as well as nature enlightenment of all the fauna and flora in the area are offered daily. Led by specialist field guides, safety is of the utmost importance.

Property Facilities:

The Main Lodge features a huge deck that looks out over an open plain where herds come to graze or drink at the water hole and predators wait for an opportunity. The large lounge area features comfortable seating, a fireplace, full DSTV and a modest library of DVDs and books for those rainy days. Hearty meals will be served three times a day in the dining area, or on the deck, where you will experience good old-fashioned home cooking. Any special dietary requirements should be arranged beforehand during the booking process. Game drives can be booked at reception and will leave from the car park outside. Massages can be booked prior to arrival and are done in the comfort and privacy of your unit.
