The stay was good and easy to gain access.

Issues with the accommodation: 1. The outdoor chairs have not been cleaned. 2. The door from the kitchen to the braai area was nonfunctioning. 3. The cold water tap in the main bedroom has almost no pressure. 4. There is a loose tile in the main bedroom as exiting to the shower. 5. The universal remote for the aircon does not work and there's no proper instruction manual on how to use it. 6. Braai platform is almost completely burnt through.

Clean, comfortable, great location, safe. Loved it there.

This is our second time at Raptor's Lodge. Once again it does not disappoint. This is a lovely stay, and you get exactly what is advertised in the pictures. Especially loved the outside shower!

Dis 'n mooi plek, maar te veel klein dinge het gepla.

Ongelukkig was die kamer/stoep nie behoorlik skoongemaak vooraf nie. Hulle het die volgende dag onmiddellik dit reggestel. Die braaier se guides was stukkend, so hy haak vas en is moeilik om mee te werk en dit was nie herstel deur ons hele besoek nie. Die braairooster is vuil toe ons daar aangekom het. Daar was geen borsel om hom self skoon te maak nie, en selfs na die oggend wat hulle die as kom verwyder het is die rooster nogsteeds erg vuil gewees. Hulle het dit reggestel die volgende dag. Die kombuislig, sitkamerlig en bedlampie het hulle herstel op dag twee. Vir seker iets wat enige tyd kon sukkel, maar alles in ag geneem, wel lastig. Verskeie eetgerei was vuil in die kaste, maar is op dag twee deeglik gewas. Daar was geen skêr in kombuis nie, dis glo omdat dit altyd gesteel word. Hulle het ons voorsien met een deur die loop van ons verblyf. Asblik binne huis het nie deksel gehad nie, maar op dag twee het hulle darem 'n splinternuwe, groot asblik voorsien. Die deur na braai-area was gesluit met geen sleutel nie, en aanvanklik is ons vertel daardie deur word nooit gebruik nie omdat die gaste die sleutels weggooi. Die huis het 4 ander deure wat met 'n sleutel werk, en ek moes eers weer daarvoor vra na ons in die reën tussen die huis en braaier moes beweeg. Die braai se dak het water gelek, so terwyl dit reën loop die water aan voorkant van braaier af en moet ons tussen strale deur die vleis hanteer. Ek het nie verwag dis iets wat hulle vooraf kon weet nie en was verbaas hulle kon dit die volgende dag herstel. 'n Ander daklek het ontstaan een oggend wat my in die bed natgemaak het. Weereens verstaan ek dit is nie moontlik om so iets vooraf te kon sien nie. Onderhoud was wel op die dakke sigbaar gedoen maar ongelukkig het dit maar probleme gehad. Die daklek was dadelik die volgende oggend herstel. Die internet was van uiterste belang vir my werk, en het op die laaste aand ophou werk. Onderhoud kan gedoen word op kaste en deure, vernis is maar al met tyd afgevat en kom vuil voor. Ongelukkig nie die prys per persoon per nag werd gewees nie.

It's a nice place, but too many little things bothered.

Unfortunately, the room/porch was not properly cleaned beforehand. They fixed it immediately the next day. The grill's guides were broken so it gets stuck and is difficult to work with and it was not repaired throughout our visit. The grill was dirty when we got there. There was no brush to clean it yourself, and even after the morning they came to remove the ashes, the grill was still very dirty. They fixed it the next day. The kitchen light, living room light and bedside lamp made their repairs on day two. For sure something that could struggle at any time, but all things considered, difficult indeed. Several cutlery were dirty in the cupboards, but were thoroughly washed on day two. There were no scissors in the kitchen, apparently because they are always stolen. They provided us with one throughout our stay. Dustbin inside the house did not have a lid, but on day two they at least provided a brand new, large dustbin. The door to braai area was locked with no key, and initially we were told that door is never used because the guests throw away the keys. The house has 4 other doors that work with a key, and I had to ask for them again after we had to move between the house and braai in the rain. The roof of the braai has leaked water, so while it rains the water runs down the front of the braai and we have to deal with the meat between jets. I didn't expect it was something they could have known in advance and was surprised they were able to fix it the next day. Another roof leak occurred one morning which wet my bed. Again, I understand that it is not possible to foresee something like this. Maintenance was clearly done on the roofs but unfortunately it only had problems. The roof leak was repaired immediately the next morning. The internet was of utmost importance to my work, and stopped working on the last night. Maintenance can be done on cupboards and doors, varnish has worn off over time and appears dirty. Unfortunately not worth the price per person per night.

'n Mens kan beter kry vir dieselfde geld.

Dit was nie 100% privaat soos geadverteer nie. Alhoewel Raptors ons klagtes probeer oplos het was dit raserig die hele week a.g.v. bouers in die unit langs ons s'n.

It was not 100% private as advertised. Although Raptors tried to resolve our complaints it was noisy all week due to builders in the unit next to ours.

Absoluut fantasties.

Weereens het Hoedspruit ons nie in die steek gelaat nie! Puik akkomodasie - skoner kan mens nie kry nie! Spierwit handdoeke en beddegoed! Dis die eerste keer wat ons aan ’n muskiet net kan vat en dis silwerskoon! Ons het ’n versoek gehad vir ’n ekstra matras in kamer en was verras om te sien dat lakens, komberse en ’n duvet splinternuut aangekoop was. Die kombuis is net groot genoeg en toegerus met alles - en skoon! Ons sal vir seker terugkeer.

Once again, Hoedspruit did not let us down! Great accommodation - you can't get cleaner! Pure white towels and bed linen! It's the first time we can touch a mosquito net and it's spotless! We had a request for an extra mattress in the room and were surprised to see that sheets, blankets and a duvet had been purchased brand new. The kitchen is just big enough and equipped with everything - and clean! We will return for sure.

In die bos, naby die dorp. Rustig!

Die swembad is hemels met die warm dae! Die braai is onderdak wat perfek is as dit reën. Die buitestort is 'n wenner en die groot bed met 'n muskiet net en luversorger was heerlik. Ons gaan beslis weer terug. Baie gerieflik met alles wat benodig word en selfs DStv.

Baie lekker. Mense oorkant ons het ongelooflik geraas gemaak.

Is 'n baie mooi plek. Mense vriendelik. Ongelukkig, mense wat oorkant ons was het Vrydag en Saterdag ongelooflik gekuier en geraas. Was al ding wat werklik sleg was. Ons was Vrydag in plek wat nie water gehad het nie. Was nogals 'n probleem, want ons reeds afgepak en toe moes ons weer pak om na ander huis te gaan. En moes toe in donker sukkel om ander huis te gaan soek, wat toe eintlik net reg langs ons was. Maar was nie so deurgegee nie. Maar verder lieflike plek.

Very nice. People opposite us were making incredible noise.

Is a very nice place. People friendly. Unfortunately, people who were across from us had an incredible party and noise on Friday and Saturday. Was all that was really bad. On Friday we were in a place that had no water. Was quite a problem, because we already unpacked and then we had to pack again to go to another house. And then had to struggle in the dark to find another house, which was actually right next to us. But was not so passed on. But otherwise lovely place.

Our stay at Raptors Lodge was perfect. We will definitely come and visit again. Good value for money and the location is excellent. The location is near major attractions at a reasonable rate appealing. Jessica the Hippo is a must see. The rooms is well spaced and clean, self catering and kitchen full equip, the outside view is bushveld, so relaxing and calming. I would definitely recommend Raptors Lodge, you won't regret once you stayed there.

Naby aan als maar vêr genoeg vir rus en vrede.

Ons het 'n heerlike naweek gehad, die huis was mooi skoon met alles wat jy nodig het. Ook heerlik koel met die hoë grasdak, waaiers en lugverkoeling in die slaapkamers. Buitestorte is heerlik. My tienerdogter het haar kamer so geniet omdat dit privaat van ons s'n was en ook 'n bad en stort gehad het. Ons het ontbyt op die stoep geniet en die swembad langsaan was welkome lafenis met die erge hitte. Ek sal miskien net wil voorstel dat die 2 sitkamer en 1 slaapkamer stoel se bekleedsel gewas word. Verder was dit lieflik.

Close to everything but far enough for peace and quiet.

We had a wonderful weekend, the house was beautifully clean with everything you need. Also cool with the high thatched roof, fans and air conditioning in the bedrooms. Outdoor showers are delicious. My teenage daughter enjoyed her room so much because it was ours and also had a bath and shower. We enjoyed breakfast on the veranda and the pool next door was a welcome treat with the severe heat. I might just suggest washing the 2 lounge and 1 bedroom chair upholstery. Furthermore, it was lovely.

Netjies en skoon, maar die beskrywing van wat daar is, is verkeerd.

Baie netjies en skoon. Volgens foto en beskrywing is daar 'n swembad by jou lodge. Wat nie die geval is nie. Die swembad is omtrent 150 m weg van die huis. Op 'n warm dag deel jy die klein swembad met die res van die oord. Die swembad is dan te klein vir almal om te gebruik.

Very neat and clean. According to the photos and description there is a swimming pool at the lodge. This is not the case. The swimming pool is around 150 m from the house. On a warm day you share the swimming pool with the rest of the resort. The swimming pool then is too small for everyone.

Baie lekker gebly.

Dis 'n pragtige, moderne chalet en ons het lekker gebly ten spyte van 'n paar ongerieflike items. Die hoofslaapkamer het nie 'n bedlampie nie en ook nie matjies voor die bed nie. Die kinderkamer buite op die stoep is bietjie onprakties, want mens kan nie in die nag hoor of hul mens nodig het nie. En ek wou nie ons kleinseun toesluit in sy kamer nie, so hy moes op die bank in die sitkamer slaap. Ons was nie baie gelukkig met die badkamer (en toilet) wat in die kamer is nie. Die bad is baie ongerieflik, mens kan nie die krane bykom nie, jy moet in die bad klim om die krane oop te maak. Die buitestort is nou wel oulik, maar jou voete is weer vuil teen die tyd wat jy in gaan ─ onprakties. Die klerekas is so donker, mens kan nie in die dag of aand daarbinne sien nie. In die kombuis was geen rasper nie en ook nie bakkies om graankos, jogurt of poeding uit te eet nie. Gelukkig maak die mooi plek op vir die ongerief.

Had a very nice stay.

It is a beautiful, modern chalet and we enjoyed our stay despite a few inconvenient items. The master bedroom has no bedside lamp and no rugs before the bed. The children's room outside on the veranda is a bit impractical, because you can't hear or need your person at night. And I didn't want to lock our grandson in his room, so he had to sleep on the couch in the living room. We were not very happy with the bathroom (and toilet) that is in the room. The bathtub is very inconvenient, you can't get to the taps, you have to get into the bathtub to open the taps. The outside shower is nice now, but your feet are dirty again by the time you go in ─ impractical. The wardrobe is so dark, you can't see it in the day or evening. There was no grating in the kitchen and no bowls to eat cereal, yogurt or pudding. Fortunately, the nice place makes up for the inconvenience.

Everything you could wish for and more!

I had the good fortune to spend a week at Raptors Lodge as a getaway from the madness of the city and my expectations were not only met, they really were exceeded! The lodge has everything you need, truly a home away from home, very well equipped and beautifully furnished. The surroundings not only beautiful, the peace and quiet is truly awesome. I had a wonderful week, would highly recommend Raptors Lodge, and I will most definitely be back! Guaranteed.

Restful surroundings and stylish decor.

Communication from Raptors Lodge was excellent. The unit was stylishly appointed and the four-poster bed with draped netting gave it a romantic feel. Coffee, tea and rusks are supplied to welcome you after a long day's travel. The outside shower would be lovely on a hot summer's evening, but in mid-winter we settled for the huge bath. The grounds are well maintained and secure, except from cheeky monkeys. Unfortunately very little other wildlife to be seen. The main swimming pool is quite small so would be a problem in the summer heat. Negatives would be the same as with many self-catering accommodation, knives are blunt, crockery is miss-matched and no matches supplied for the braai fire. Access to the Kruger Park is at Orpen gate, a mere 70 km from Hoedspruit.

Iets was ek net opgemerk het wat julle in gedagte kan hou vir toekomstige gaste is miskien vuurhoutjies as iemand dit vergeet en ook nog koffie bekers daar was net 3 beskikbaar en ons was 4 gaste so mens moet dit die heeltyd was. Verder was dit uitstekend. Het die natuur verskriklik geniet.

Something I just noticed that you can keep in mind for future guests is maybe matches if someone forgets them and also coffee mugs there were only 3 available and we were 4 guests so you have to wash them all the time. Other than that it was excellent. Enjoyed the nature very much.

Best service ever! Kimberly is really the best and was so grateful for all her help. It was amazing.

Not sure with regards to any other good sites in Hoedspruit as we have been to some camps but will have to do some research on places to see and to go to. The Blyderiver Canyon was amazing, specifically the boat trip, even though we had to stand, as the boat captain could not arrange and organise other people not to use the spare seats as storage for their bag and luggage!

Mooi plekkie, maar nie lekker geslaap nie.

Mooi plekkie in die bosveld, skoon en netjies. Ons het in Eenheid 3 gebly. Die mense in Eenheid 18 het ons slapelose nagte gegee! Vrydagaand het ons hulle gehoor, maar dit was nie te rof nie. Saterdagoggend het die mense al biere in hulle hande gehad toe hulle verby ons eenheid gestap het. Saterdagaand was daar harde musiek, geskreeu, gesing en baie geraas. Ek moes die 24 uur-kantoor bel en hulle het 'n voertuig na 'n halfuur gestuur om die mense stil te maak. Dit was 01:00 die oggend, maar hulle het seker eers na 03:00 opgehou. Ek het uitgesien na 'n rustige naweek in die bos, maar het beter by my eie huis geslaap!

Pretty little place, but didn't sleep well.

Pretty place in the bushveld, clean and tidy. We stayed in Unit 3. The guests in Unit 18 gave us sleepless nights! On Friday evening we heard them but it wasn't too bad. Saturday morning the people already had beers in their hands when they walked past our unit. On Saturday evening there was loud music, shouting, singing and a lot of noise. I had to phone the 24 hour office and after half an hour a vehicle showed up to quiet the people down. This was 01:00 in die morning, but they probably only stopped after 03:00. I looked forward to a peaceful weekend in the bushveld, but had a better night's rest at my own house.

Uitstekende waarde vir geld.

Die verblyf is 'n bederf en die rustigheid, netheid en volle DStv diens het bygedra tot 'n welkome huislike gevoel en ervaring. Die braaier buite kort so 'n bietjie aandag aangesien die rooster in het en kan jou vleis daardeur verlore raak. So 'n bederf en die waarde vir geld dra daartoe by dat ek enige tyd weer daar sal gaan bly. Die WiFi diens is egter baie stadig en 'n bietjie frustrerend.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Excellent value for money.

The accommodation is a treat and the tranquility, cleanliness and full DStv service contributed to a welcome homely feeling and experience. The braai outside needs a little attention as the grill is inside and your meat can be lost through it. Such a treat and the value for money contributes to the fact that I would stay there again anytime. However, the WiFi service is very slow and a bit frustrating.

Ek sal nie weer daar gaan bly nie, het meer verwag vir waarde vir my geld, dit was asof hulle nie die plek skoongemaak het nie, daar was nog melk in die yskas van die vorige mense wat daar gebly het en daar het 'n vuil lap gelê by die wasbak. Die badrand se sement was stukkend gewees.

Everyone was friendly, we had a very nice honeymoon there. Will stay there again anytime. Everyone went out of their way to make it special for us.

Netjies en gerieflik.

Raptors Lodge het nie net goeie diens gelewer nie, maar die kamers en eenhede is netjies en modern! Die eenheid was goed toegerus en met die eetplek daar naby het ons nie eers nodig gehad om iewers heen te ry nie. Die wild wat verby die kamers loop, het sommer die wildtuin-ervaring vroeg-vroeg begin. Ons sal dit definitief aanbeveel.

Neat and convenient.

Raptors Lodge not only delivered great service, but the rooms and units are neat and modern! The unit was well-equipped and with the restaurant nearby we never had to drive anywhere. The game roaming freely and going past the rooms greatly contributed to the "game park" experience. We can definitely recommend it.

Teleurstellend.

Alhoewel die verblyf baie skoon en netjies was, was daar geen swembad soos wat op die blad geadverteer was nie. Ek sou aanbeveel dat mense wat by Raptors bespreek eers doodseker maak waar hulle ingeklok word, want daar is 2 persele waarvan die een glad nie is soos wat geadverteer word nie. Gaste word ontvang deur die "anti poaching"-wagte, wat glad nie baie verwelkomend was nie.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Disappointing.

Although the accommodation was very clean and tidy, there was no swimming pool as advertised on the page. I would recommend that people booking at Raptors make sure they are checking in first, as there are 2 premises, one of which is not at all as advertised. Guests are received by the "anti poaching" guards, who were not very welcoming at all.

Waarde vir geld akkommodasie.

Die eenheid was nie uitgevee voordat ons in is nie. Dooie goggas en hopies sand op vloere en vensterbanke en leë sjampoe bottels in stort. Geen warm water in kombuis.

Pragtige plek, net BAIE moeilik om te kry in die aand.

Lugversorging in al die kamers of selfs waaiers sou gaaf gewees het. Hoedspruit is te warm om daarsonder te wees.

Beautiful place, just VERY hard to find in the evening.

Air conditioning in all the rooms or even fans would have been nice. Hoedspruit is too hot to be without it.

Netjies, skoon en rustig.

Met aankoms het ek gesukkel om die kantoor te kry. Daar was geen name op geboue nie. Maar nietemin, dit was ook ons eerste besoek. Die lodge is baie rustig en dit het ons die gevoel gegee van jy is in die bosveld. Het swaar getrek met die hittige dae en voel daar moet in elke vertrek lugverkoeling wees. Het net een lugverkoeling in een slaapkamer gehad. Verder was die plekkie baie skoon en baie netjies -binne en buite. Ek het 'n ekstra versoekie gehad voor aankoms en dit was gedoen sonder probleme - baie dankie. Sal definitief weer gaan vir n wegbreek.

Neat, clean and quiet.

Upon arrival, I struggled to find the office. There were no names on buildings. But nevertheless, it was also our first visit. The lodge is very peaceful and it gave us the feeling of being in the bush. Had a hard time with the hot days and felt there should be air conditioning in every room. Only had one air conditioning in one bedroom. Furthermore, the place was very clean and tidy - inside and out. I had an extra request before arrival and it was done without any problems - thank you very much. Will definitely go again for a getaway.

Zeer compleet, schoon groot met een heerlijke buitendoevhe.

We kregen een mailtje waarin stond wat de code van het het was en dat de sleutel op tafel lag. En zo was het, een heerlijk huis prima inrichting. Airco en een waaier. Buiten een grote tafel met makkelijke stoelen.

A very comfortable and relaxed stay.

Was very impressed with the accommodation and location. Definitely will go there again. The unit was spacious and comfortable and absolutely private. We had an occasional visit from one or two animals which we welcomed. Only one downside was that the open-plan bathroom/bedroom was not practical.

Die plekkie is ongelooflik skoon en netjies. Dit is sentraal geleë. Leigh se gasvryheid is ongekend. Sy gaan uit haar pad om jou verblyf aangenaam te maak sonder om jou privaatheid te versteur. Linda het dit mooi skoon gehou en was baie vriendelik en aangenaam. Baie dankie vir 'n lekker tyd. Ek sal beslis weer terugkom en die plekkie vir almal aanbeveel.

We enjoyed our stay at Unit 5. The chalet was clean and functional apart from the TV reception which was irregular. However the peace and tranquility of the environment makes it an ideal get away for stressed city dwellers.
