This property has been featured in many magazines including the "This is Africa" feature of the Homewoners magazine. The property is situated a 10 minute walk from the Zebula Clubhouse operated as a boutique Protea/Marriott Lodge with restaurants, bar, pro-shop, convenience shop, spa and Peter Matkovich designed 18 hole 72 par golf course, designed to ensure the natural contours of the land are followed and the result is a seamlessly integrated bushveld course.
Security is supreme with the Estate situated in a sensitive game preservation area where Big-5 Reserves have a 24 hour inspection point with boom and guards to inspect and scan all incoming and outgoing vehicles as part of a very successful anti poaching programme. Zebula itself has its own extra security with electric game fencing and fingerprint access technology at the entrance gate and the Estate has a 24 hours a day patrol with additional anti poaching units added at night. Zebula itself has no predators and residents can do their own game drives and are able to walk, run and cycle in the reserve to enjoy the bush, wildlife and game without concerns for personal safety.
