Drakens View Bush Villa
Bieneke Baas, Netherlands - 08 October 2010
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.
A great spot for blyde, hippo and kruger...

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..

What a wonderful place. As one of the other guests said "I have not been to a self catering unit that is so well and generously equipped. We had a fantastic time and walked out onto the balcony at 9.00 am with ca cup of coffee and had 3 giraffes staring at me. Abso;lutely fantastic. I will definitely go back again!!! Thank you Heather
Great stay at Raptors
David Greenwell, United Kingdom - 12 July 2007
Excellent lodge with lots of extras. Very comfortable and maid service excellent. What was really special was waking up at 2am to see a Giraffe munching a thorn bush just 3 feet from our bedroom window. He came again the next night - we hardly wanted to go to sleep! We will definitely be back and this time will use the bikes to cycle round the reserve.
This is tranquility!!

266 Raptors View

We had a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable stay in 266 Raptors View in March 2007. The house is beautiful and the setting is simply magnificent. We have never stayed in a self-catering house that is so well and generously equipped. The house was spotlessly clean, thanks to Linah the maid and the pool was very welcoming in the 42 degree heat! During our stay at 266 we saw Nyala, Impala, Kudu, Warthog, Giraffe, Side Striped Jackal and numerous colourful birds and lizards. We would thoroughly recommend a stay in this lovely home.

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)
