Raptor Ridge Lodge, Gariepdam, is located on the Lake Gariep route, about six minutes drive from the N1 highway and next to the Gariep dam. It offers splendid overnight facilities for travellers between Gauteng and Cape Town or Port Elizabeth, as well as visitors to the Gariep dam and surroundings.
Property Facilities:
The Gariep Dam accommodation is made up of 4 units with single and/or double beds. Each unit has an en-suite bathroom as well as a porch with a panoramic view overlooking the Gariep dam and the surrounding Karoo.

Other facilities available at the lodge are a lounge, wooden deck, braai facilities and shaded parking.

With a view, and not to disturb the tranquillity of the immediate surroundings solar power and gas facilities are utilised.

The option is available to book the complete lodge, including the equipped kitchen and braai facilities, pending availability.

Area Information:
With the lodge overlooking the Gariep Dam, the largest fresh water expanse in South Africa, it is a great place to relax. Getting mesmerised by the stretched-out plains filled with game like Eland, Gemsbok, Kudu, Blouwildebeest, Sprinbok and Blesbok, or watching the endless bird species, or the water expanse is not at all that difficult .. not to mention star gazing under the clear Karoo skies.

In Room Facilities:
We offer you nature at its best, so no TV and we make use of solar energy, so we are limited in certain ways and therefore if you would need to make use of an hairdryer the host would start the generator for you.

Attractions:
Raptor Ridge Lodge has much on offer, amongst others:
* A one hour hike through a private game farm.
* Mountain biking route
* Game Drives
* Chilling out on the wooden deck overlooking the Gariep Dam and nature reserve;
* Spectacular sunsets and magnificent star gazing opportunities.......

The place is clean and neat and comfortable with a nice deck at the room with a view on the dam. Dinner and breakfast was good and we really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay there again.

An absolute experience that made the weekend. We enjoyed the closeness to the nature. Just an observation maybe they need to look into air-cons for the rooms.

Our 1 night stay over at Raptor Ridge Lodge was very pleasant & enjoyable. The lodge is situated in peaceful and tranquil surroundings and not far from the Gariep "town centre".

The only slight negative aspect is that there is no kettle or fridge in the room as the lodge runs on Solar power. Fortunately boiling water for tea & coffee can be obtained from reception. The bed was very comfortable and a delicious hot breakfast is available at a reasonable cost. We will certainly consider staying there again on any future travels.

We had a very pleasant stay with a view of the Gariep Dam in the distance. We had a nice clean warm bed and plenty of hot water and a nice spacious shower. We could have done with a small heater as it was a bitterly cold night.
We were served a lovely cooked breakfast the next morning.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
