Looking for a truly green investment?

Published 10th May 2007

Then look no further than this unique opportunity to invest in a ground-breaking conservation project aiming to re-establish endangered species such as the rhino in southern Africa…

Located in Botswana, just north of South Africa, the 32,500 hectare Limpopo-Lipadi reserve is one of the largest private wildlife conservation projects in Southern Africa today. Once linked to the greater Trans Frontier Park, the combined expanse will span a staggering 400,000 hectares!

The Limpopo-Lipadi team are currently looking for an exclusive group of just over 150 passionate eco-investors from all over the world to become shareholders in a public Botswana company which owns the land, the lodges, vehicles, planes and the project itself.

So if you’re looking for a solid investment which also gives you the chance to get involved in cutting edge conservation, this is definitely not one to miss…

Bringing conservation into the 21st century
In these environmentally aware times, it’s impossible to ignore the massive damage man is imposing on the planet. The threat of climate change raises questions for all of us – from individuals to companies, from countries to continents. And as the environment changes, so many species are being pushed to the brink of extinction.

It is these 21st century challenges which inspire the passionate commitment of the Limpopo-Lipadi conservation project to safeguard Botswana’s natural treasures for future generations. Situated just to the north of South Africa, Botswana is a rich tapestry of stunning landscapes – from the arid Kalahari Desert to grassy savannas, from the tranquillity of the Okavango Delta to the rushing rapids of the Limpopo, Africa’s second largest river.

Jacques de Bruin from the Limpopo-Lipadi team explains how the reserve is setting new benchmarks in environmental management:
“Both my grand father, my father and myself have been involved in Game Reserve projects all over Southern Africa and none of them had the financial, operational, social and environmental sustainability models in place which Limpopo-Lipadi has,” de Bruin commented. “Limpopo-Lipadi will be the most elite and exclusively privately owned nature conservation project in Africa for years to come.”
By investing in Limpopo-Lipadi, shareholders can be fully involved in the largest re-establishment of endangered species in Botswana to date. Shareholders can also explore the beauty of the reserve at their leisure, invite guests to stay and participate in a wide range of conservation training courses. The project will be carbon neutral and incorporate a social dimension, offering employment opportunities to local people.

Africa’s hidden diamond
Botswana is one of Africa’s little known economic success stories. After independence in 1966, the country’s economy averaged 9% growth a year up until 1999, giving it one of the fastest per capita growth rates in the world. This jaw-dropping economic expansion has been mainly due to Botswana’s thriving diamond industry, which produces the bulk of the country’s exports. Today Botswana has a negligible level of foreign debt with foreign exchange reserves of over $7 billion in 2005/2006. And with the discovery of Uranium in Botswana in 2007, the country’s mining boom is showing no signs of slowing.

In 2004, both Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s assigned Botswana an “A” grade credit rating, making Botswana by far the best credit risk in Africa and putting it on par with or above many countries in central Europe, East Asia and Latin America. In the same year, Botswana was ranked as Africa’s least corrupt country by Transparency International, again ahead of many European and Asian countries. The World Economic Forum rates Botswana as one of the two most economically competitive nations in Africa. Taken together, these credentials make Botswana one of the best – but least known - investment opportunities in the developing world.

Investors in Limpopo-Lipadi will own the full title deed to 6 luxury air-conditioned lodges and camps, all with email, internet and skype access. The reserve will have its own airstrip a 1.5 hour flight from Johannesburg. Every 50 shares sold will incur an immediate growth in share value of around US$ 10,000 and shares are expected to sell for over US$ 200,000 by December 2008. Prices are predicted to rise again to US$ 400,000 per share by 2010 when the reserve is promoted in connection with the 2010 South Africa World cup. Botswana abolished foreign exchange controls in 1999, meaning profits and direct investment can be repatriated without restriction.

Make a real environmental difference!
Minimum entry offer to invest in Limpopo-Lipadi is US$ 125,000 per share. If you consider yourself a true “eco-investor” who is not only looking for a sound financial investment but is also passionate about conservation and the environment, then this is the opportunity for you!

Paul Klomp, Dutch shareholder and patron to the white and black rhino breeding projects, commented: “I have never seen such a comprehensive Environmental Management Plan on any conservation project in the world and I am honoured to play a small part in re-establishing the endangered black and white rhino population of Botswana through the Limpopo-Lipadi project.”
