Imagine if this year, on 5 June, World Environment Day, you could pack a bag, and head out to your own private sanctuary on the banks of the Crocodile River. Picture yourself, kicking off your shoes, and booking tomorrow’s game drive or finishing a Zoom call, as a zebra strolls by your window …

At Shawu’s Hills all this is possible, and more. Situated on a breathtakingly beautiful peninsula that juts right into the Kruger National Park, Shawu’s Hills is a haven for nature lovers and those seeking tranquillity and refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Here the emphasis is on rehabilitating and preserving the natural environment. Bluegrass, the developers of this idyllic retreat know just how precious it is. They have commissioned a team of experts who are as committed as they are to this special place and to ensuring that the ecological balance of the area is maintained while providing a luxurious and comfortable living experience.

One of the key factors lending credibility to this commitment is their partnership with NuLeaf Planning and Environmental specialists that every aspect of the development aligns with the principles of sustainability.

A multidisciplinary company offering a unique combination of experience on integrated and sustainable solutions, NuLeaf has been actively involved in various projects aimed at preserving and protecting the natural environment. With more than a decade of expertise, the NuLeaf team has guided the team at Shawu’s Hills on environmental assessment, planning, management, and landscape design, much of which involves the rehabilitation and return to the wild of what was once beautiful farmland. NuLeaf has also made a significant contribution to the eco-tourism and conservation management at this wildlife estate.

With NuLeaf’s guidance, Shawu’s Hills incorporates a range of sustainable practices that minimise impact on the environment. From environmental planning to responsible construction & development, every aspect of Shawu’s Hills Wildlife Estate has been carefully considered to ensure a minimal carbon footprint.

In close proximity to Malelane and Komatipoort towns, the sensitively designed modern architectural aesthetic of Shawu’s Hills Wildlife Estate is perfectly suited to the bushveld setting, structurally complementing the environment, its textures and forms. Choose whether you want to own your own piece of this paradise or part-own. Approved plans include 93 full-title stands, fractional ownership lodges, 75 to 100 timeshare units and one commercial lodge. Each and every one enjoying access to views of the wildlife that congregates at the Crocodile River, and each having access to the landscaped recreation area with its restaurants, art gallery, kids’ zone and much more.
