   Hoedspruit area on the world’s wildlife estate radar   CENTURY 21, the world’s largest property group, has identified the Hoedspruit area bordering Kruger Park, as one of the most promising wildlife estate development nodes in Africa.   The giant group has opened a dedicated office in Hoedspruit, CENTURY21 Wildlife, to cater for present and anticipated demand as awareness of the area’s attractions grows worldwide.   Andre Nel, who heads up the new office, says CENTURY 21 has already secured numerous valuable mandates from developers in the area inclusive of estates such as Raptors View, Karongwe Game Reserve, Blyde Wildlife Estate, Wild Rivers Nature Reserve, Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate and more.   “Estimates are that up to 40% of the numerous wildlife estates have been acquired by overseas investors and owner-occupiers while discerning South Africans have also bought into the lifestyle” says Nel   Wildlife Estates are by definition - secure game farms with access control and perimeter game fencing. They are divided into one hectare stands and have no fences between the properties, allowing game to traverse freely across the land. Separated by game tracks, woodlands and watering holes, each one hectare site ensures unparalleled privacy and security   “The attraction of the greater Hoedspruit area lies in the large choice of estates and price ranges.  It’s possible to acquire anything from freehold to syndicate owned properties ranging from the distinctly affordable to the multi millions.”   Buyers also have a wide choice of estate types, varying from those stocked with the Big Five to more benign game populations which allow their human “guests” to wander freely.   The area is characterised by classic bushveld and is typically rolling terrain with rare indigenous fauna and flora. The Northern Drakensberg serves as the backdrop and the powerful Oliphants and Blyde rivers provide the lifeblood to this true piece of Africa.   The well known independent Southern Cross School provides the opportunity for families to relocate to this area and offers a quality academic education up to grade 12. The children have the unique opportunity to learn and play in a natural environment without the influences of moderncity life.   “The estates are well served by roads and there are a number of airports including Kruger Park International near Nelspruit, and the local Eastgate Airport, recently upgraded with international status to take wide bodied aircraft“   Stands of about 1ha in extent range from about R350 000 up to R2m while entry level prices for homes and stands begin at about R1.3m ranging up to about R10m.   Home Owners’ Associations maintain building and architectural standards and the developers have been at pains to use natural materials and colours to create masterpieces that blend with the surroundings.   “We have experienced tremendous initial interest since opening our new office and our international referrals network is already attracting investors,” says Nel.
