Here is a look at why you should consider a stay at this magnificent Boutique Hotel, the fact that it’s also a bird friendly venue is just one part of the excitement therefore Vaalnest would like to share some insight on birds of prey specifically because the fish eagle is one of our attractions. Any bird that pursues other animals for food is known as a bird of prey and according to our avid birders and researchers the list includes; Eagles, Falcons, Hawks, Osprey, Shrikes, Vultures and more. They all come in different sizes and shapes and that is what makes them unique from one another. Also to note is that the word “Raptor” is derived from the Latin word “Raptare”, which means “to seize and carry off”, which is why the name raptor is sometimes if not always synonymous with the designation “bird of prey” phrase. Eagles much like Vultures are among the largest and strongest of birds which is why the eagle is used as a symbol for most entities around the world as it signifies strength and achievement. For all this and more book a stay with us and get a sense of this magnificent nature that surrounds us. To book, remember to select 1night when searching for availability, as the package pricing is based on a 2night stay.
