Raptor’s View is a mature, well managed estate with a strong focus on conservation to preserve the unique lifestyle that our residents enjoy. Not a ‘Big 5’ reserve, Raptor’s View can be enjoyed on foot and bicycle.
The tranquillity of Raptor’s View appeals to a variety of people, from pensioners looking for a quiet, secure home, holiday makers and also to an increasing number of young families who have relocated to live in Hoedspruit and send their children to the private school on the estate.
There are 305 residential stands on the estate, most of which have already been built on. Fewer than 20% are occupied by tenants. A cosmopolitan mix of local and international residents live part time or permanently on the estate.
The roads, named after birds of prey, are interlaced between mature indigenous trees, offering regular sightings of jackal, giraffe, zebra and wildebeest and many species of antelope.
Single storey thatched dwellings are built to architectural specifications aimed at reducing the environmental footprint on the estate and blending into the natural environment.
Two reservoirs supply residents of the estate in times of water shortages.
