Green Economy

We aim to reduce environmental risks and ecological scarcities by implementing an integrated strategy for an economically sustainable farming unit. This approach is best-proven to preserve the natural environment, whilst also uplifting disadvantaged local communities within the Wolmaransstad region. 

We are completely solar-power dependent, including the main lodge which provides accommodation for 12 people.

The solar-generated power is used to ‘electrify’ the 25km-long outer security fence. Solar also gives power to several submersible water pumps scattered throughout the farm. All of our 52 gates which are fully remote-controlled, are also entirely powered by solar-power panels located at each of the gates.

Geographically, we are situated in a water scarce region of the North West Province (of South Africa). On the farm, water is recycled. All excess water from reservoirs is naturally diverted to dams where bird- and game-viewing outlook-posts have been built. For more, see Wise Water Management at Hillcrest Game Estates.
