A golden opportunity to own a beautiful and unique piece of pristine African bushveld with a sought-after 50-year renewable lease-in place. The lodge and bushcamp overlook the Barangwa Pan, a wilderness area on the border of the Chobe National Park in a private concession area with attractive scenery and aged Baobab & other indigenous trees. The Savuti Marsh area, Chobe National Park and River Front and Linyati are easy game drives away.
The 22,450m² (20 ha) property is held under an agreement of lease for business plots with the Chobe Land Board in favour of the owner for a period of 50 years from the effective commencement date of 21 November 2012. The property has also been registered with a Title Deed in the Deeds office of Botswana. All trading and other licences are in place. Construction of the Lodge was completed in 2017.
The Lessee has the right to renew the lease for a further period of 50 years subject to rentals being paid up to date and conditions of the lease being complied with. The annual rental levy is extremely affordable at just under BWP6000, compared to similar lodges, many of which must pay more than BWP250,000 per annum.
The Lodge is completely “off-the-grid” being fully powered by solar power supplied by a double bank of solar panels and using an inverter system, with an impressive back-up of deep-cell batteries in case of cloudy days. Water is supplied to the lodge by borehole water for all its needs. Grey water and sewerage is drained into conservancy tanks and piped into a “bio-box” treatment system.
Wildlife abound due to the regular availability of water in the pan, which is fed from boreholes powered by solar pumps. Regular visitors are herds of elephant and buffalo plus many other species of antelope, not to mention the abundant birdlife. Another huge advantage is that because the Lodge is not situated within a National Park, night drives are permissible which allows visitors to see nocturnal animals and birds!
