Do look what Senwane had to offer

Co-ownership of a game farm.

 

The concept comprises a transaction where you buy a share in a game farm, offering you three weeks’ right of use. Basically it means that a farm is owned by 17 owners, or shareholders. During each of the three weeks you have exclusive right on and access to the farm and the lodge for your own use. The three weeks are divided as follows:

 

 

  • 1 week during the hunting season (May to August)

 

  • 1 week during September to December

 

  • 1 week during January to April
 
These three weeks rotate on an annual basis in accordance with a precompiled schedule. During the allocated week in the hunting season each of the 17 owners receives a quota of game that may be hunted for a remuneration. If you and your hunting group exceed the annual quota, the exceeded amount of game is payable at market-related prices. This was implemented to establish justice between the 17 shareholders and the farm
 

During the two off-season weeks the farm could be used for relaxation, entertainment and various extramural activities. These weeks are also ideal to enjoy quality time with family and friends on the farm.

Some of the farms also have a breeding component that varies between buffalo, sable and nyala. This was established to generate income for the shareholders.

Every farm has a farm manager who permanently lives on the farm and who is responsible for all management aspects of the farm – veld management, deforestation, feeding, pest control and maintenance of the roads, as well as normal hunting-related tasks. There is also a managing company that manages each farm and his farm manager according to a precompiled management plan. It is the responsibility of the managing company to make sure that the management plan is implemented.

 

 

The costs to manage the farm are divided between the 17 shareholders who each pays a levy to the farm.

The past eight years the concept of part-ownership has been successfully applied in various areas, especially on luxury products such as holiday homes. What are the advantages of part-ownership of a game farm?

 


  • Part-ownership is effective for a product that is not used 52 weeks of the year. You therefore pay a reasonable price for the right of use that you need.

 

  • With the exorbitant prices, part-ownership is the solution to obtaining ownership of a game farm, because the value of the farm is divided between the 17 shareholders.

 

  • The monthly expenses of a farm is terribly high. Shared ownership makes it possible to invest in a farm by sharing the costs with the other shareholders.

 

  • For many life is a rat race, and they do not have the time or energy to manage or maintain a game farm on a full-time basis. A professional managing company and farm manager manage the game farm on your behalf and also handle all the routine work associated with such a farm.

 

  • DJ Farmer offers a resale service making a share easier saleable than an entire farm.

 

DJ Farmer aims to implement an exchange programme between the co-shareholders in various farms in various areas. For example, if you have bought a share in Senwane, you may exchange your hunting week with another shareholder on a farm in the Northern Cape or in the Waterberg. This programme will take effect in 2014.
