No fear of electricity and water cut-offs in Mbombela in December

The Kruger Lowveld Chamber of Business and Tourism is not concerned about electricity and water cut-offs in Mbombela in December at this stage. KLCBT will keep members informed with correct and verified facts and will intervene or support where necessary. Read the KLBCT’s article here.
Msauli Village – reopening for business?

Msauli Village, nestled in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Mkhonjwa Mountains adjacent the Songimvelo Game Reserve, was developed as a mining town in the 1940s and abandoned in 2003. The village originally comprised 100 houses, a guest house, recreation club and all other associated services and infrastructure for a mining village and a wide range of sports facilities including a nine hole golf course. RGM Holdings has entered into a long-term lease with the current owners, Ekuphleni Kesive Songimvelo Communal Property Association, and commenced with refurbishment of the facility. The objective is to restore and develop the property to promote sustainable socio-economic development in the context of this important nature conservation and tourism development area. The emphasis is now on creating employment opportunities for surrounding communities. Community benefits are initially via direct employment, on the job training and related entrepreneurship opportunities. Msauli Village is a multi purpose development offering comfortable accommodation and a wide range of outdoor activities for the adventurous or a place to sit quietly and reflect on the surrounding beauty.  A meandering river flows through the residential estate.
