Nestled in the heart of KZN, South Africa lies one of the world’s most breathtaking, luxury developments, Mahathunzi. Appropriately named after the Sanskrit word “maya,” meaning powerful connection, the Zulu word “is’ithunzi,” meaning presence, aura, confidence, spirit, well-being and shade. Mahathunzi, allows residence to experience Africa like never before. Safaris and exploration are both amazing experiences in themselves, but actually owning a home and residing in the middle of paradise can now be a reality.
Arriving from the vision of Fred Wörner, Mahathunzi, is a part of the 7,400 acre, five-star Karkloof Safari Spa, where many exotic animals including Giraffes, White Rhinos, Kudu Bulls, Wildebeests, Zebras, and Imapalas, among others that freely roam in a predator-free land. Residence will own a slice of paradise and say hello to their new and local neighbors. A natures paradise comes alive with authentic African terrain from grassland plains, plateaus, cliffsides, valleys of forest and water pools.
In addition to the spa resort, residence accommodations also come with a viewing deck, 49 discreet, nature-blending housing units, with concierge, staff, and travel and entertainment service will all be on hand. Each unit is different from the next, allowing customization and a taste of your own style for your home. As Wörner shares, “My vision was to create an opportunity to live amongst wildlife, while leaving a minimal footprint on the landscape, a place where time stops, an experience I and my guests have enjoyed and which has massively added to the quality of our lives. Interest in the development is coming from buyers who love Africa and love the idea of living cheek by jowl with wildlife in a green and sustainable way where wildlife will always have priority.”
If you want to trek back into town, Pietermaritzburg is only 20 minutes away and is a central area for education, shopping, healthcare and airport access. In addition, the residents of Mahathunzi have access to almost 30 miles of roads within the property to explore and view the area as well as enjoy mountain biking, hiking and fishing.
