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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Lodge suited our needs perfectly. It is situated close to half way between Cape Town and Pretoria. Being close to Gariep Dam and having wild animals between us and the dam was remarkable. Bets is a great hostess. The quiet was lovely, and we chose the solar option to make our stay even more eco friendly. In the drier climate, the variety of succulents was pleasing. We loved the visiting crow!
The dining room is so tastefully decorated with rich wood in a more natural state. Sharing the kitchen was pleasant, and eating in that magnificent setting with the view of the dam at sun set beautiful. All in all, a worthwhile, value for money stop over.
