About Raptors Lodge Group – Self-catering Accommodation

Raptors Lodge Group – Self-catering Accommodation is an upmarket self-catering lodge, situated less than one hour from the Orpen Gate of the Kruger National Park. Raptors Lodge is luxury self-catering at its best and the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

We are situated in the heart of Hoedspruit, nestled between the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon. This small and unique, conservation-orientated town offers many interesting tours and activities, such as guided tours of Protrack Anti-poaching Unit Training Camp, visits to the Moholoholo Animal Rehabilitation Centre, the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, or go all in and enjoy fun-filled activities such as white water rafting, horseback riding, hot-air ballooning and more.

Accommodation is offered in two lodges and an apartment, which are fully equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms. Soak away in our large comfortable bath tubs, or take a splash in the outdoor showers.

The open-plan kitchens are well-equipped with quality appliances and kitchenware, looking onto the cosy lounges and indoor fireplaces. If you need a break from cooking, enjoy our outdoor braais on the patios or take a walk over to the Safari Club Pub and grill which is just on our doorstep.

On those sizzling hot days, get out and enjoy the swimming pool and its comfortable relaxing atmosphere. Look out onto the natural bushveld and the Drakensberg Mountains.

We are also situated within just crawling distance of the African Summer Spa, where you can treat yourself to one of their many spa packages that will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated. If the crawl is too far, they will come to you.

What a pleasant surprise. Our hostess Leigh was very helpful from the initial booking enquiry up to our departure. The unit is tastefully decorated and the kitchen is well equipped. An added bonus for us was the bath-sheets (most self-catering units/hotels have the standard size towels), it’s the small things that matter and make you feel right at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
