  • Description
  • Facilities
Set under the Majestic Drakensburg Mountain Range in a wildlife estate, this self catering home is the ideal place for friends and families alike to get away to the African bushveld.

The house is positioned deep in the reserve and is home to a wide variety of wildlife ranging from the smallest lizard to the larger antelope. As the animals are classed non dangerous, families and friends can spend the early mornings walking through the reserve or for the more adventurous there are 7 mountain bikes available to experience the bush on the week. The rest of the day can be spent lazing at the private pool or at one of the attractions close by.

End off the day with sun downers at the bird hide watching the animals as they come to drink, followed by a bush veld braai (barbeque) at the Boma, where you can hear the African nightlife come to life.

There are several attractions in the immediate area including the Kruger National Park (Phalaborwa gate – 58Km and Orpen Gate 50KM); Blyde River Canyon, Kapama Cheetah project; Camp Jabulani offering Elephant Safari’s and over 100 Lodges offering Guide game walks and drives; @ gold Courses (Hoedspruit – 9 hole Gary Player Design and Phalaborwa – 18 Hole Hans Merensky)

Thank you for a wonderful weekend in the bush. We enjoyed it a lot. We will see you again.

12 July 2011

This was the second time we stayed in the bushvilla at Raptors View Hoedspruit. But this time we stayed a month. We spend yearly some time at Raptors but this house made our stay even more enjoyable. It is an intimate house and plot with a lot of privacy and it felt as if the house was our own. We had a lot of animals on and near the deck, Nyalaas, cats, mongooses, genet, vervet monkeys, rockmonitors, a spotted bush snake etc. Even the wild dogs were very close to the house. We love the bush and will certainly come back in March or April 2011.

We had a super stay at the bush villa, raptors view, its in a great position to drive up through the blyde canyon and then arrive and relax in a fabulous house with everything and in a great setting, shops are close for the essentials, but once in you wont want to leave. A 15 minute drive and you can meet and kiss!! Jessica the hippo. A great place to relax before beginning or continuing your visit to Kruger national park. We thoroughly loved our stay and my wife would still be there if she could be. Superb..
