SALE OF SHARE IN GAME LODGE IN TULI BLOCK BOTSWANA
Looking for an experience of a lifetime, be part of the magnificent Botswana Tuli Block.
The share can be subdivided into a maximum of 4 owners.
Shashe farm is a 2570 hectare private game farm situated in the Northern Tuli Game Reserve. The
Northern Tuli Game reserve has an area of 70000 hectare with no fences between the various farms.
The farm has the Tuli Circle as its northern boundary and Shashe River as its eastern boundary.
There are also other rivers and springs on the farm that hold water year-round.
No hunting is allowed; hence this opportunity will not be of interest to anyone looking for a hunting lodge.
Megwe camp was built in 1998 and opened its doors for occupation in 1999. The lodge is nestled into a dry river bed and is surrounded by large trees, creating a cool environment for the camp during the hot summer months.
Megwe Camp consists of:
A central facility that includes a modern and fully equipped kitchen, outside dining area, fire place, small library, inside lounge and outside lounging areas, storage area and storage lockers for shareholders.
Four chalets each consisting of an en-suite bedroom, equalling a total of 8 beds.
Garage, parking and workshop facilities.
As the shareholders wish to create a true bush environment and be environmentally responsible as possible the reticulation of electricity is limited. The electricity is generated by a solar system and facilitates the operation of the bore hole pump, deep freeze, refrigerator and fans in the bedrooms only. No further electrical reticulation is allowed, subject to unanimous approval by shareholders.
Being a private camp with such low occupancies, Megwe is a self-catering lodge. Shareholders are responsible for bringing all their own food and drinks with them for the duration of their stay. There are possibilities of ordering food from shops in the extended area and having it delivered to the lodge but
most shareholders prefer to do their own shopping before travelling to the farm. The lodge is equipped with a Toyota Landcruiser Game Drive vehicle for the shareholders’ use, but shareholders also keep their private game viewing vehicles at the lodge.
large herds of free-roaming eland, zebra, kudu, impala, giraffe, elephants and wildebeest are seen regularly and many other plains and smaller game are also found in the area. Lion, hyena, leopards and cheetah also regularly frequent the farm. The variety of habitats ensure extensive bird life

The shares can be held by an individual or their respective company or trust. Each share must have a nominated
user which needs to be a natural person to prevent misuse. The only limitation is that shareholders may not bring a group of more than 8 people other than by special permission for a special function.
