WILDLIFE AND LEISURE PROPERTY PORTFOLIO

I

believe that every developer has a responsibility to the land and the people who live upon it. A responsibility to ensure that the vision which the land has inspired, is brought to life, no matter how difficult or time consuming. Through the years, what has kept us ahead is passion; a passion for land and the pursuits it inspires. Passion helps you see the Big Five roaming free, where once only cattle and fences existed. It allows you to succeed where others fail. And, most importantly, it helps you overcome the ordinary and achieve the extraordinary. Jordan Properties has become synonymous with premium developments across the country and around the world as a developer and consultant, from syndicated developments to timeshare, country estates to marine and wildlife reserves. We have built a solid reputation for innovative and unique developments, always pioneering. I would like to share with you our dreams, visions and ideas that so many people and communities have helped bring to reality. In the pages that follow I have summarized some of the projects which we have developed and been involved with over the past 30 years.

INTRODUCTION PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT To survive and prosper as a developer you have to be a jack-ofall-trades and master of many. The various fields of expertise we have attained over the years are a product of experience; each development has taught us invaluable lessons. What follows is a collection of achievements that time and experience have been generous enough to grant us. EAST AFRICA PROPERTIES We are in partnership with an International Property Management and Development Company, EAP which operates out of Mauritus. EAP currently has a three year management contract with three listed Zimbabwean companies. The offices administrate and manage commercial, industrial, residential and leisure properties, a portfolio worth in excess of US$40 million. Our relationship and knowledge through this offshore operation provides an ideal opportunity for investors of the future and further African developments.

CONSERVATION We have conceptualised and established eight proclaimed private nature reserves. This impressive collection includes the 11 500 hectare Thornybush Game Reserve and the 26 000 hectare Welgevonden Reserve in the Waterberg, two of our Big Five reserves and more recently the Big Four 15 000 hectare Blue Canyon Game Conservancy. It also includes the truly unique 30 000 hectare Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary which combines both terrestrial and marine habitats in one environment. This model was presented at a conference in Geneva by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) as a model for sustainable developments. GAME RELOCATION We have over the years become experts in the stocking and relocation of various species, from egrets to elephants and bush-babies to buffalo. One of the most significant was our involvement in the first ever relocation of elephant family groups into Thornybush Game Reserve and two years later, from the Kruger Park to other private reserves. Our latest reintroduction was in 2008 when we relocated elephant, lion, leopard and general game to Hoedspruit’s Blue Canyon Game Conservancy.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS Through various projects, past and present, we have contributed over 8 000 beds to the leisure and tourism industries of Mpumalanga, Limpopo Province and Mozambique. We have provided employment for over 1 800 people during development phases, and permanent employment for over 1 000 people. All of the developments we have been involved in over the past three decades total more than R6 billion. But beyond beds and bottom lines, the various lodges, reserves and private estates displayed on these pages have achieved much more. The quality of life of the individuals and families that live within them have advanced, ensuring that areas of Africa’s protected wilderness remain so for decades to come. We have been privileged to work alongside a host of partners and professionals whose expertise, insight, passion and support have helped us achieve a level of success that is often attempted but seldom attained.

We have also built schools and a clinic for communities in Mozambique and South Africa. Our projects have, directly and indirectly, embraced tens of thousands of community members in upliftment related to ecotourism.

Rhino Revolution, Hoedspruit A world first community based anti-poaching initiative of which we are co-founders. For more information on the initiative call their 24 hour hot line on +27 82 385 9812.

GOVERNMENT LIAISON AND PUBLIC RELATIONS Jordan Properties has consulted with Government and companies on issues ranging from ecotourism to marketing strategies and with property owners on evaluating their property opportunity and maximising output. Trevor Jordan has addressed the House of Lords Subcommittee on African Affairs and Conservation in Southern Africa. He also presented a private/public sector sustainable environment project model at the October 2002 World Summit for Sustainable Development, co-presented with the USA Government Agency – Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) – and has advised the Tanzanian Parks Board on commercialisation of their national parks. Trevor Jordan was also a major player and influence regarding the removal of the Western boundary fence of the Kruger National Park incorporating large private properties.

COMMUNITY UPLIFTMENT Jordan Properties has been a major contributor to the skills development and upliftment of various local communities through implementing and supporting numerous selfsustaining community projects, from bush clearing and construction skills, to computer centres and hospitality services.

HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM Over the years we have conceptualised, marketed and managed various hospitality establishments. Amongst others, we managed Thornybush Private Game Reserve and its lodges, successfully marketing these luxury lodges to both the international and domestic tourist markets.

Khaya Ndlovu Game Reserve (2004)

Kruger Park Region, Limpopo Province, South Africa This 1 300 hectare, Big Game reserve forms part of the greater 15 000 hectare Blue Canyon Game Conservancy.

It gives owners the best of both worlds, bushveld living in a major reserve and yet minutes from the shops of Hoedspruit.

Thornybush Private Game Reserve (1991) Kruger Park Region, Limpopo Province, South Africa

It all began in 1984 with a simple meeting between two men about a piece of land. There was the old Dyason family game lodge and little more. Today it boasts no less than 13 luxury lodges, spread over some 11 000 hectares of prime African bushveld – from the rustic charm of Chapungu Lodge to the glamour of Royal Malewane. Piece by piece, through lengthy negotiations and innovative deals, Thornybush Private Game Reserve has grown and matured into one of the country’s premier wildlife destinations. It was home to the first adult elephant family group relocation ever undertaken. The first meeting of all involved, in the removal of the Kruger Western boundary fence, was hosted here. Thornybush stands as a testament to what like-minded individuals with a common vision can achieve. It stands as an example of Jordan Properties’ commitment to creating unique and outstanding wildlife experiences.

N’tsiri Game Reserve, Big Five (1980)

Kruger Park Region, Limpopo Province, South Africa N’tsiri set the standard for all syndicated private game reserve developments. It was the first ever syndicated shareblock concept in a wildlife estate. Such was the popularity of this groundbreaking idea that the initial 50 shareblocks sold out within a week. Today, it is not uncommon for owners who bought in for R20 000 at the project’s inception, to sell for more than R3 million.

Welgevonden Big Five Game Reserve (1995) Waterberg, Limpopo Province, South Africa

Among private game reserves, Welgevonden has few equals. Hidden deep in the foothills of the Waterberg, Welgevonden is a private Eden of over 26 000 hectares of unspoiled wilderness.

Welgevonden is a popular safari destination. It is only a two and a half hour drive north of OR Tambo Airport, in a malaria free area. Over 50 owners have freehold title to 500 hectares and traversing rights on over 26 000 hectares of the Reserve’s numerous habitats.

San Sebastian Peninsula, Inhambane Province, Mozambique

This breathtaking 30 000 hectare sanctuary lies in the southern area of the Bazaruto Archipelago, and encompasses seven of the eleven important natural habitats identified by the World Bank – more than the Kruger National Park or Tanzania’s Serengeti. With 54 residential sites and upmarket lodges – comprising a total of 120 beds – this model of low-impact, high-value ecotoursim has uplifted the community through job creation and will preserve the dynamic biodiversity of the region. Vilanculos Coastal Wildlife Sanctuary is regarded as the top property development in Mozambique. Home to endangered species such as the Leatherback Turtle and the Dugong (sea cow), this development is pioneering and multifaceted. The terrestrial wildlife on the Sanctuary is being restored through a large scale game relocation operation, and will ensure the future of ecotourism in the remarkable, well protected area. The Sanctuary was recently presented as a world leading model at the World Summit on Conservation. www.jordanprops.co.za | wildlife and leisure property portfolio
