The lodge is self-catering and whilst staff are on hand to assist with all the housekeeping functions of cleaning, washing, laundry, setting of tables, building fires, maintaining vehicles,
etc. the supply and preparation of meals and drinks remains with the shareholders and their
guests. There is a newly opened supermarket, where most supplies are available, at Alldays

The farm and property are owned by 25 equal shareholders and this is a strictly private lodge and reserve. There are no commercial activities on the property and as such, the operational costs are funded through shareholder levies. This is the price for exclusivity. The company does have an investment portfolio – the income from which is used to subsidise the operations of the lodge and farm, thereby buffering the shareholder levies from the full operational costs.
The Lodge is in what we term an elephant exclusion zone. There is a 3-strand electric fence around the lodge at roughly an elephant’s chest height. This keeps the elephants out and by default, the giraffe. All other game is free to move into and through the lodge grounds and surrounds. This was a decision taken some years ago to protect the vegetation surrounding the lodge. This vegetation is crucial to the privacy of the lodge and units as well as to the fauna and flora of the area. Since erecting this exclusion zone we have observed an increase in bird life around the lodge. There has been no effect on the movement of animals through the lodge (obviously apart from elephants and giraffe). This project has been regarded as a huge success.
