Development rights have been granted to 54 private properties by the Mozambique Government to develop private homes on specified sites on The Sanctuary. 23 homes have been built to date, with two under construction, all of which conform to a building code overseen by formal processes of application and approvals overseen by a sub-committee of The Sanctuary’s Board.

The developed homes on The Sanctuary are either sole-owned or held in syndicate share arrangements among multiple owners. Syndicated homes generally work on allocations of time blocks throughout the year.

Each site contributes a mandatory annual levy to meet the approved budget for the purpose of managing and maintaining The Sanctuary as a conservation area as stipulated in the various approvals by the Government of Mozambique.

The Board has recently given formal approval to private homes being let out for rental, subject to certain conditions so as to not compromise the commercial lodges on The Sanctuary or the terms of the original license agreement.
