The SiyaThemba Municipality is actively seeking partners in
a joint venture Public Private Partnership for the development
of the area know as “Die Bos”.
This outstanding property is situated on the Southern Bank
of the Orange River comprising a total area of 41.112 hectare
with 2100 meter of North facing river frontage. This area includes
an Island of 4.7741 hectare.
The Municipal vision is for a multifunctional resort; incorporating,
various water sport facilities, conference and catering facilities,
accommodation in luxury self catering and catered chalets, Caravan
(motor home) and camping facilities. The existing 9 hole (18
tee’s) golf course adjoining the property is keen and
willing to enter into the joint venture thus expanding the overall
size of the operation significantly.
Water is abundant while infrastructure development will be
part of the public aspect of the partnership. Within the confines
of the property is an Olympic swimming pool in need of renovation
but fundamentally sound, tennis courts, a number of small chalets
and ablution facilities presently operated by a concessionaire.
Taking into account the abundant sunshine and high temperatures
this area experiences and the location, adjoining the town within
the city limits and less than 1 km from the town center this
location is unique in Southern Africa. Access to Prieska is
excellent in terms of road while chartered air traffic may make
use of the local airstrip. Scheduled flights may be made to
either Kimberley or Upington almost equidistant from Prieska.
SiyaThemba Municipality is prepared to entertain proposals
with regard to this outstanding investment opportunity.
