Bets, die gasvrou was fantasties!Die kamer was baie netjies en skoon. Die sonsondergang langs die dam was iets besonders. Tot laat saam met Bets en vreemde mense gekuier.Kan beslis Raptor Ridge Lodge aanbeveel.

Bets received us as long lost friends, amazing. The rooms are big enough and the bed left us with a good night's sleep. The view is good. Pity about the lack of real electricity for coffee but the lights were good and you can get hot water in the kitchen. Lots of bugs.
