New Order Developments, in conjunction with the Ntsinde Royal Jozini Holdings Trust, has announced that Jozini Tiger Estate has the final approvals in place, and has been given the go-ahead to be released to the public for purchase.

At an event hosted on 26 April 2017 in partnership with Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal, an organisation aimed at promoting investment to the province, it was confirmed that this significant estate is the first and only freehold purchasing opportunity on Jozini Dam. Offering only 49 exclusive freehold stands, as well as a choice of home packages, it is ideally situated within the same boundaries of the much acclaimed Jozini Tiger Lodge.

“I grew up in Jozini and loved it so much that I had to jump at the opportunity to own a piece of this beautiful land. Despite the fact that Jozini brings up nostalgic, fond memories for me, I believe that as an investment and place to live, Jozini Tiger Estate offers the property market something special and unique. It is undeniably beautiful, a rare opportunity and a great investment,” explains Moses Tembe, well-known Durban businessman and Jozini Tiger Estate Ambassador. Being a successful businessman, Moses Tembe uses Jozini Tiger Estate as his holiday home, and finds this a convenient escape. It is an ideal retreat for businessmen, especially as it is only a 3-hours’ drive away from Durban and a 5-hours’ drive away from Johannesburg.

Not only an outstanding weekend-getaway home, Jozini Tiger Estate offers a remarkable investment opportunity. Being within the same property of the Jozini Tiger Lodge, which enjoys a year-round occupancy rate of between 80% to 100%, the estate provides an opportunity for those who have invested in Jozini Tiger Estate to rent out their home throughout the year. With the overflow of hotel guests, investors are guaranteed to have a demand for their homes, and in addition generate an excellent opportunity to gain a continuous rental return.

Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal has been an anchor through partnership formed with Jozini Tiger Estate; with the objective to market the province of KwaZulu-Natal as a tourism and investment friendly destination; this was done through various marketing platforms that promoted the development on numerous domestic and international platforms.

Inspired by the surrounding African wildlife and nature, Jozini Tiger Estate has created a luxury residential estate that provides a lifestyle residents can indulge in and enjoy. By doing so, estate owners, or those who are renting the homes, have access to the hotel facilities, including the boat mooring, Mangwanani spa, canoeing, walking trails, abseiling, boat cruises, fully equipped gym, sauna, kid’s club, restaurant and bar, clubhouse, a pool area, and the soon-to- be released bungee jumping. Furthermore, Jozini Tiger Estate benefits from being situated right on the border of the Pongola Game Reserve and residents will have regular sightings of hippos, crocodiles, and elephants, to name but a few.

“This type of development opportunity doesn’t come around every day, and we are exceptionally proud of leading this new milestone in Jozini. We know we have a winning product, especially when you look at the dam, African bush, wildlife, luxury and lifestyle that is provided right on your doorstep. Who could resist waking up to panoramic views of the dam and indigenous nature?” shares Albert Lourens of New Order Investments.

The first phase of Jozini Tiger Estate will release 24 stands, sized between 549m² to 1371m², and these stands will range from R650 000 to R1 850 000 in price. In phase two 26 stands will be released, while phase 3 will consist of 186 sectional title apartments and timeshare elements.
