ClareMart has been instructed to auction a potentially lucrative game farm and nature reserve close to the Kruger National Park.
Situated 15km south of the Kruger, 75km east of Mbombela, and 45km west of the Lebombo/Komatipoort border post with Mozambique, Mauricedale Nature Estate comprises 6600 hectares of mountains, plains and swathes of Lowveld trees.
“This property could yield astronomical returns,” says Sanjeev Boyjoonauth, ClareMart senior auction consultant.
The property, stocked with wildlife, has a 76-bed lodge, main farm house and eight additional cottages. There is zoning approval for two additional lodges and sub-division of 100 residential stands of 1ha each.
Mauricedale’s helipad caters for the tourist trade and the farm is already stocked with a large variety of game species, as well as a veterinary-certified game abattoir and shooting range. The property holds an exemption certificate to hunt, capture and sell game.
The orchards include 45ha of papayas and 34ha of litchis, both leased to tenants who grow commercially.
“Eskom supplies power and water is sourced from the Crocodile River, dams, boreholes and a natural fountain. Its proximity to the Kruger National Park, Leopard Creek Golf Estate, Mozambique’s Indian Ocean coastline and that it is a mere four hours’ drive from OR Tambo International Airport and an hour from the Maputo beaches make this an ideal destination,” Boyjoonauth says.
“The property will be sold as a going concern and is currently valued at more than R450million.”
The game farm is among the lots for ClareMart’s multi-property auction at Hellenic Community Centre, 24 Bay Road, Mouille Point, on September 25 at 12.30pm. For more details, email Boyjoonauth on email@example.com, call 0214258822 or 0712239552 or see www.claremart.co.za.
