About Raptors Lodge

Raptors Lodge is an ideal base from which to explore the rich diversity of the Limpopo Province. Nestled in the heart of Hoedspruit, our luxurious, upmarket 4 Star self-catering lodges offer you a home away from home.

Our twelve well-appointed lodges are a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city living.

We are also able to offer dinner and B&B options at a restaurant which is situated at the entrance to Raptors Lodge, called Safari Club.

Each luxury lodge is fully equipped and designed to sleep a maximum of four people. One bedroom has a king-size bed and the other bedroom has two single beds, either pushed together or apart.

Both bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom facilities with a bath, an oversized bath, basin and a wonderful outside shower for a truly wonderful experience.

The open-plan kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, fridge, microwave and quality appliances. There is an outside braai area with a small boma.

We offer DStv and every unit is serviced on a daily basis.

There is a communal swimming pool on the premises with stunning views of the natural bushveld.

We are situated five minutes from the town of Hoedspruit with a wonderful selection of eclectic restaurants to tempt your taste buds.

Safari Club is 0.1 km from the entrance to Raptors Lodge, as well as The Hat and Creek and Carla la Pasta. Visit our new shopping centre called Rock Fig and delve into some culinary delights from Mad Hams Deli.

There are loads of activities in the area as we are only a one-hours drive from the world famous Kruger National Park and we can organise your own safari experience where you will be collected from the lodge in an open safari vehicle and taken to a nearby game reserve to spot the Big 5.

We are within walking distance from African Summer Spa, where you can treat yourself to a day of spa treatments.

The vacinity of the lodge to all the sight seeing attractions is a bonus. The location of our accommodation was right next to the busy gravel road of the adjacent lodge which disturbed the peacefulness a bit and caused some dust. But for us we needed a place to explore the lowveld, kick off our shoes, have a braai and relax with a glass of redwine. Raptor's Lodge was perfect for doing just that.

We enjoyed our stay for the weekend at Raptors Lodge. If you are looking for a place to stay close to Hoedspruit Town which gives one the bush feel I would recommend Raptors Lodge. The Units are free standing surrounded by bush giving one a feeling of being out of the city. The units were ideal for a couple, clean, functional and comfortable.

Excellent location with comfortable rooms and great entertainment area. Really enjoyed our stay and our unit had a private pool. Sat on the patio and watched the game walk past in the neighbouring Raptors Estate.Recommend the lodge to future guests.

It's a very nice lodge, with a good spacial lay-out. Clean, and great facilities. Very central to all activities in the area.

You don't really want me to review this. The first unit we were meant to stay in hadn't been cleaned literally in months, but there was a sweet on the bed? The second unit - might have been cleaned that day, not sure, there was a stain on top of fridge where something leaked and dried, there was dried blood in the freezer and MOLD growing in the egg tray in the fridge. We ended up not staying there at all, wish I could get a refund!
