The entire estate is run by a landowners’ association (LOA) while each portion is individually owned. Commercial activity on the estate is restricted to this portion on which the lodge is situated and the owner is authorised to run a guesthouse on the premises.
Each portion's owner subscribes to the rules of the LOA and contributes to the running of the estate by paying a monthly levy. The running of the estate include managing the health of the game, removing alien vegetation such as black wattle, maintaining the roads and the perimeter electric fencing. The wide variety of game on the estate is owned separately by the “Animal Rights Owner”. This means that the lodge owner can simply enjoy the benefits of the extra-ordinary fauna and flora of the estate without having the responsibility of managing and caring for the it all. These is taken care of by the Land owners association on your behalf.
