R and R at Raptor Retreat Game Lodge – Limpopo

main-lodge-2_0The family and I made the trip to Hoedspruit again this past weekend, to enjoy some “rest and relaxation” at Raptor Retreat Game Lodge.  


As always, we had the best time.  Keith and  Sharmaine are the  perfect  hosts and  always  make our  stay one  to  remember and  cherish.



 We stayed in the self  catering  units, which  are JUST  amazinimg_3945-2g.  Each sleeping 4  people,  they have a top of the  range,  fully equipped  kitchen, on suite  bathrooms,  separate  toilets, open plan kitchen, dining room and  lounge area and  a stunning wooden deck  that overlooks  the watering hole.   We braaied in the boma, swam in our private  pools, did the game drives, 960 Grid System: http://960.gs watched  the  rugby , sat on our decks  and watched  the animals  go by, met  some  new  friends (Davis  and  Pippa  Loupe, from  Lawrence, Kansas were here for their  25th  wedding anniversary )  prayed for rain  and slept   img_4041-2

 In all  my  years of  visiting  this area, I have  never seen  it so dry.  Rain  is  desperately  needed.

 Thanks  again Keith and Sharmaine for  hosting us.
