Security on the estate is top priority and outsourced to a professional security company. Access is tightly controlled, and the perimeter fence is electrified conservancy-standard fencing.
Raptor’s is surrounded by neighbouring wildlife estates and security is managed cooperatively with adjoining conservancies, all of whom have equal standards of access control and fencing. There are two manned access points of entry into the estate with strict gate controls and access cards for residents. Access cards are issued by the office for residents and visitors. Security cameras are installed at strategic points, and the fences are patrolled 24/7.
Contractors, estate agents and domestic workers undergo annual security checks linked to the SAPS criminal data base, and carry access cards with photos, ID numbers and employers’ details. All contractors have their company name displayed on three sides of their vehicles for easy ID.
Our local Farmwatch offers the community a safety support service and their reaction unit will assist and respond to emergency calls from their members in any situation that potentially indicates a threat to life or property. They work closely with the South African Police Service.
