According to the current owners; Elephant Kraal has committed to building and operating in the most ecologically responsible way possible, by researching state of the art solutions from the outset and by implementing green practices during initial installations and throughout the ongoing operations of the hotel and lodges. The development is zoned, subdivided and 90% serviced. Consists of 21 Full title sites whereof 5 have already been sold. Income from the remaining 16 is purported to be in excess of R9.5 million. Sizes of stands vary from 3000 sqm to 10 000 sqm. Building packages range from R1 590 000 for a 3 Bedroom Lodge. Still to be developed is the boutique hotel, that will house a state of the art spa, restaurant, conference and wedding venue. Potential income per annum with 50% occupation will far exceed R 13 .7 Million per annum. This offer includes an existing 3 star lodge comprising of 4 'rondawels' divided in the middle to create 8 rooms and includes all the furniture and fittings.
