At the heart of Raptor Retreat is the Main Lodge where guests can gather to either dine or catch-up on their adventures. Relax with a drink on the deck or slump into one of the voluptuous leather couches.

The Main Lodge features a huge deck that looks out over an open plain where herds come to graze or drink at the water hole. The large lounge area features comfortable seating, a fireplace, full DStv and a modest library of DVDs and books for those rainy days. Hearty meals will be served twice a day in the dining area, or on the deck, where you will experience good old-fashioned home cooking. Any special dietary requirements should be arranged beforehand during the booking process. Game drives can be booked at reception and will leave from the car park outside. You will also be able to purchase toiletry items you may have left behind.

The accommodation at Raptor Retreat is some of the best the industry has to offer. We currently have two private lodges: the Elephant Lodge (sleeps 2 people) and the Buffalo Lodge (sleeps 2 people). Each air-conditioned room has high thatched ceilings and a huge, built-in king-size bed as well as a large sliding door that opens onto a private deck with double recliners. Slip into your own splash pool and cool off under the hot African sun whilst watching game graze nearby. Complimentary teas and coffees are provided as well as a fully stocked bar fridge. On request, lunch can be served on your private deck at an additional cost. The open plan wet bathroom features sliding doors, duel basins, a large shower and bath. Complimentary toiletries of superior quality are provided. A safe for your valuables, wooden coat-hangers, a large laundry bag, insect repellent, insecticide, beautiful cotton swimming towels, an extra blanket and a hair dryer have been provided.
