Accommodation in the Parsons Nature Reserve near Hoedspruit at Raptor Retreat Game Lodge from ZAR345.00 pp sharing a Self-Catering Unit.

Raptor Retreat Game Lodge in the Hoedspruit area of Limpopo is situated in the Parsons Nature Reserve which forms part of the Kruger National Park.

Raptor Retreat offers a truly soulful experience in an environment where time stands still and where refined, stylish accommodation, coupled with 5 star service, will forever be remembered.

At the core of Raptor Retreat Game Lodge is the Main Lodge where guests gather to unwind in comfy leather couches, make lasting friendships, view the abundant game which visit the waterhole from the large deck, or enjoy the mouth-watering cuisine served in the main dining area. The Main Lodge also houses a modest library of books and DVD’s, full DSTV and a fireplace for those chilly or rainy days.

The accommodation at this owner managed game lodge is world class. The two private thatched lodges, the Elephant Lodge and the Buffalo Lodge, each have air-conditioned rooms which open out onto a private deck with double recliners positioned under the trees and adjacent to your own splash pool. The lavish en suite bathrooms are stocked with complimentary toiletries and thick fluffy cotton towels.

For those who prefer to self-cater, The Rhino and Hippo self-catering units,  each have two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a lounge with DSTV, fully equipped kitchen, large elevated patio with dining facilities and a splash pool, dotted with chaise-loungers. Each of these self-catering units also have their individual boma area with fire pit and braai facilities. Guests staying in the self-catering units may also book on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis.

With the Big 5 in the neighbourhood and an abundance of birdlife, an early morning Game Drive or Walk, accompanied by a professional guide, promises to be a highlight of your stay. A spa treatment or massage following the excursion will revitalize and refresh you for the planned activities ahead.

The profusion of wildlife, spectacular scenery, the magnificent accommodation and the outstanding hospitality all combine to lift your senses and leave you with everlasting memories of this pristine piece of Africa.
