What makes this villa unique

The views from the terrace are unique. The house is situated at the far end of the estate and has an unobstructed view of the "lowveld" all the way up to the Drakensbergen mountain range.

We enjoy the view tremendously as the sky and the mountains change color throughout the day.

Living at the far end of the estate also means it is very quiet and therefore easier to see wildlife.

From the terrace you also have a great view on the watering holes which is only 50 meters from the house. You will notice it attracts numerous animals.

Tow of the 3 walking trails start from this end of the estate.

fantastische ervaring midden de natuur

  • 5 of 5

Als de slagbomen van Raptors View opengaan, start een 6 km lange weg naar het mooie huis, soms vergezeld van zebra's en giraffen.

Het huis is voorzien van alle comfort zowel om binnen als buiten te leven. Tijdens ons verblijf in de winter hebben wij regelmatig gebruik gemaakt van de braai/BBQ binnen. Er is een grote frigo en diepvries aanwezig zodat je zeker voldoende voorraad kan inslaan.

Het mooie uitzicht is een grote troef.

Er zijn voldoende mogelijkheden in Hoedspruit om inkopen te doen en lekkere restaurants in de buurt. Hoedspruit is zeer centraal gelegen. Het Krugerpark en de Blyde River liggen op zeer doenbare afstanden.

Marvellous stay in the bush

  • 5 of 5

We were simply stated extremely delighted. The house is very cosy and nicely decorated with beautiful African artefacts. The style fits perfectly in the bush and this aspect is all over taken care in the estate. The villa offers a lot of space and had all comfort. The architectural design with a big central area of living, kitchen and dining corner and the fact of having 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms assure a lot of privacy within the house. Also the surroundings guarantee privacy and quietness. The neighbouring houses are hardly visible and we have not heard their inhabitants.

The beds were very good and the outdoor showers a very pleasant discovery. Outside at the terrace you could always find a spot with shade or with sun. We mostly cooked in the house; the kitchen and appliances are of high standard.

Within the estate the villa is located in the quietest corner with beautiful views. The bush feeling with the peace, silence, nature and animals around is perfect and let you simply forget the daily stress from home; the kind of relaxed holidays as expected. Nature is very present: we saw different kinds of antelopes, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, etc. and the nights are really dark with visibly more stars as at home.

Finally, we appreciated the service offered: reception at arrival, the weekly cleaning (including the braai) and the assurance that you could always call in case of questions.

It is certainly a place which we can recommend and to where we will return.

GEWELDIG

  • 5 of 5

Wat een fantastisch huis op een geweldige plek! Vanaf het terras uitzicht op de Drakensbergen en op een waterplas waar allerlei soorten dieren komen drinken. Het huis ligt geheel vrij. Een heerlijk terras, het bad ter verkoeling (wij hadden heel fraai weer) en de braaiplek overtroffen al onze verwachtingen. Wij genoten ook bijzonder van de buitendouche! We wandelden diverse trails en stonden soms oog in oog met een paar giraffen. Kudu's en impala's in de tuin. Wat een feest, wij komen zeker terug.

Perfecte vakantiebestemming in Zuid - Afrika, aan het Krugerpark

  • 5 of 5

Ons verblijf met vier personen op Raptor's View in februari was fantastisch. De boeking verliep vlot en bij aankomst werden wij ontvangen door lokaal personeel dat ons de weg wees naar het huis.

Het huis zelf staat op het hoogste plekje van het wildlife etstate, met uitzicht op de bergen, waar je kunt wandelen tussen de giraffen en zebras. Er lopen geen leeuwen rond dus het is veilig om de Afrikaanse bush te voet te verkennen.

Het huis is ruim opgezet, voorzien van zwembad en wi-fi en badkamers uitgerust met buitendouche. Wij hebben hier een geweldige week gehad.

Hoedspruit zelf heeft winkeltjes en restaurants en ons uitstapje naar het Krugerpark was geweldig.

Wij komen zeker terug!
