About Raptor Rise
Raptor Rise is a working olive and cattle farm with several well-appointed accommodation options for discerning visitors. Located in Tulbagh’s incredible ‘Valley of Abundance’, only 90km from Cape Town and in the heart of the Western Cape Winelands, its beauty defies description. Your hosts, Bill and Averil Slater, have gone to great lengths to provide you with a blend of comfort and privacy, whilst ensuring that each suite has unique views of the magnificent setting. Quality finishes, crisp white linen and so many special touches delight the heart and extend a warm welcome. This lovely farm offers a bouquet of self-catering accommodation options – suitable for small, intimate getaways and also large gatherings of up to 32 people. Among other delights, Tulbagh is wedding town – what better than for a family than to spend this happy time together? Conferencing facilities for up to 24 people are also available.Raptor Rise is named for the birds of prey that ride the thermal currents created by the combination of valley and mountains in the area. Sitting quietly on your veranda, you too may observe the Jackal Buzzards circling or hear the clarion call of the majestic Fish Eagle summoning the soul to serenity. Guests may walk, run or cycle anywhere on the 37 ha farm, and you may also purchase its lovingly created produce.FARMSTEAD SUITES (No’s 1-5) Below the main farm house a large shed and disused stables have been completely rebuilt to house a 2-bedroomed apartment, 4 en-suite double rooms, reception office, conference venue, gym room and laundry.SOUTH WING SUITES (No’s 6 -9)The recently renovated main home on the farm can accommodate an additional 8 - 12 people in 4 self-contained self-catering suites in its south wing.

All the rooms have all been delightfully decorated, using revamped period (ball & claw/Queen Anne-style) furniture, and feature compact kitchenettes as well as braai facilities. Units 7 and 8 can either be totally private or, for your convenience, linked to form a family unit.
