Dis ons geliefde oornag plekkie. Mense is vriendelik en behulpsaam en dit voel sommer soos familie. Dis lekker op die plaas.
Baie goeie waarde vir jou geld.

We enjoyed our stay at Raptor Ridge Lodge. Esme was exceptionally friendly and attentive to our requests. She provided a delicious breakfast.The only negative is that the mattress on the bed we slept in needs replacing.
- Colleen Sutherland

Mooi plek maar probleme met warm water.
- Teresa Van Der Watt

Very enjoyable
- Chris Van Huyssteen

Ons het hier oorgeslaap oppad Mosselbaai toe. En is nie 'n dag spyt nie. Die rustigheid is net wat ons nodig gehad het so in die begin van ons vakansie.
