THE ENVIRONMENT

With regards to environmental responsibility two wildlife and environmental consultants Dr. Hans Grobler and Peter Le Roux have been visiting the property on a weekly basis since 2001 and have advised, and will continue to advise on the rehabilitation and sustainable wildlife management of the property. As part of the development of the property, an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) was established and approved by the Department of Environmental Affairs. The two wildlife and environmental consultants have been appointed as the Environmental Control Officers (ECOs) in terms of the EMP and report to the Department of Environmental Affairs every 6 months.

This holistic approach has ensured the carrying capacities of the gated property are not exceeded, that food sources are sustained, soil erosion is prevented, invasive alien vegetation is monitored and removed with the competent assistance of the local community as the development forms part of the Umgeni catchment area, and, annual animal census' are recorded. One of the ECOs will also sit on the Architectural Committee at Mahathunzi to ensure that the environment will always have right of way. This land supports established populations of Wildebeest, Giraffe, Reedbuck, Eland, Kudu, Impala, Nyala, Blesbok, Zebra, and Warthog as well as abundant bird life and many other indigenous species.

AN OUTDOOR WAY OF LIFE

Residents will be able to utilize the more than 46km of all-weather shale roads within the property for game viewing routes as well as take advantage of the expansive freedom to enjoy mountain biking, walking and even trail running.
