Described as an eco-sensitive residential estate, Likweti Bushveld Farm Estate has a discerning awareness for nurturing the natural environment and the earth’s need for protection. Located on 700 hectares of unspoilt Lowveld Bushveld, we work hard to ensure that the residential development merges seamlessly into the unspoilt backdrop.
Architects and landscapers at Likweti Estate work closely with our environmental control officer to ensure that designs and garden layouts don’t interfere with the unique natural surroundings. Although the development receives electricity directly from Eskom, owners are also encouraged to invest in energy saving features like solar power, heat pumps and rain water collection which will save them money in the long term, and ease the burden on the infrastructure. Water-wise gardening is another way owners can cut the cost without having to cut corners.
We are proud to maintain our own water storage and treatment facility and have a longstanding programme that combats alien and invasive plants actively. Wildlife population numbers and condition are monitored regularly to ensure a healthy population of animals and a balanced eco system.
In an attempt to offset levies we have repurposed a portion of old tobacco lands by planting macadamia trees. The yields of these trees will in future play an important role in subsidising levies and advancing the overall finances of the estate and its infrastructure.
