The Development Plan
Broadly speaking the Mjejane Game Reserve development plan provided for:
- A Big 5 game reserve open to the Kruger National Park to allow for the free movement of game across the Crocodile River. The fences were dropped in 2008 and game moves continuously between the Kruger and Mjejane.
A 500ha nature reserve with "non-dangerous game" for safe walking and mountain biking.
See the development plan.
Freehold title stands (with residential rights) in designated development erven within the Big 5 game reserve.
There are three categories of stands. These are: river view stands overlooking the Crocodile River; bush view stands
overlooking the Big 5 game reserve; a limited number of 1ha stands situated along a seasonal riverbed in the Big 5 area
of Mjejane Game Reserve. Sales have been strong and availability (October 2015) along the riverfront is very limited.
A luxury tented camp on the banks of the Crocodile River. To be developed.
An exclusive timeshare development (Mjejane Bush Camp) with self-catering timeshare lodges overlooking the Crocodile River
and the surrounding bush of the Big 5 game reserve. Sales have been very strong with a waiting list for specific weeks in riverfront units.
A low level access bridge linking Mjejane Game Reserve into the Kruger National Park's road network. This was completed in 2012 and is in daily operation.
No specific architectural styles or themes have been adopted as they go in and out of fashion. The Developer has chosen to celebrate the
landscape of the area, spirit of place, materials and climate. The vision for this development can be described as sophisticated modern African
design embracing crisp, warm modern architecture with strong graphic qualities and honesty in the selection of materials.
The purpose of Architectural Guidelines and Building Specifications is to encourage individual creativity, and a harmonious sensitively constructed
environment that will be sympathetic to the existing natural beauty of the reserve through unity of materials and finishes, whilst ensuring a high
quality aesthetic and attention to individual privacy. The improvements on each portion may not consist of more than 1 (one) dwelling-house which
may consist of a number of separate structures around a main structure, together with the usual outbuildings.
The Developer has appointed an Estate Architect and an Architectural and Aesthetics Committee (AAC) to control the execution of all aspects relating
to the Architectural Guidelines and Building Specifications to ensure high quality standards. The design of individual dwellings should be done in a
sensitive manner taking the natural vegetation and trees into consideration, reducing the potential for damaging or removing individual trees. If
trees have to be removed, an application is required to be made to the AAC motivating the removal, failing which they are to be incorporated into
atria or other such design forms.
Only architects registered with the South African Council of Architects (SACA) may submit drawings for development within the reserve, all engineers
must be registered with the S.A.Institute of Civil Engineers (SAICE) and builders must be both NHBRC registered and Mjejane approved.
Detailed architectural guidelines will be provided to prospective investors on request.
