I've been trying to update information about residential developments in the Waterberg. It's not easy to get straight answers from some developers nor to get any real answers from the appropriate Limpopo office. Nevertheless, here's a summary that is not far from accurate, but should still be used with caution.

Four projects are either recently on the market, quite actively in the process of marketing and construction, or with final provincial approvals in hand – Tholo Bush Estate, Nyathi Eco and Wildlife Estate, Sable Hills Eco Park, Sabili Safari Lodge and AirPark. Together, these four plan 426 stands on over 8,316 hectares.

Three projects are awaiting final provincial approvals – Mangweni Private Game Reserve, Tau Country Lodge, and Thaba Meetse I. 214 stands in total.

There is one project with provincial approval for several game species, but its intentions for residences and a lodge are unclear – Ceasars Bush Palace.

Eight projects are either dormant or with their applications withdrawn – Thaba Lesodi, Nieuw Gelderland, Kudu Canyon, Mokolo Wilderness Estate, Vaalwater Extension (between Spar and 4-way stop, on the west side of the road), Shamburu Private Reserve, Kololo, Thaba Meetse II.

That leaves five projects for which I've been unable to get good information – Rock Lodge, Sterkstroom Private Reserve, 24 Rivers Private Reserve, Tamboti River Private Game Reserve, and the project next to the curio shop outside of town on the road to Modimolle.

If you have corrections or additions to this information, please let me hear from you.
