WildNet Africa Properties, an introduction.

       About us  

Founded in 1994, WildNet Africa Properties is a licenced Real Estate Agency specialising in wildlife properties throughout the Southern African subcontinent.

The company principal, Craig McKenzie (B Compt. CFA  MPRE) has a deep and lifelong passion for African wildlife and conservation and has travelled extensively in the unique wilderness areas of Southern Africa.  He has a very wide first hand understanding of the property types within this region.

Formally qualifying in 1987 as both a real Estate Agent and as a practicing accountant, Craig subsequently gained wide experience in brokering wildlife property transactions across the African subcontinent. He has accumulated extensive knowledge of the rapidly evolving, and increasingly complex African wildlife property market.


In addition to formal qualifications, as an investor in and director of both a large private Game Reserve (45,000 hectares in extent) as well as a large private Game Ranch (23,000 hectares in extent) Craig has also acquired many years of practical hands on operational experience. He is therefore well qualified to guide prospective purchasers through the process of deciding where, why, when and in what form to invest in a wildlife property.

 Our Strategy;

 Traditional real estate brokers typically focus on showing properties for which they hold a beneficial mandate and that are located in the nearby areas that are most suited and convenient to them. However at WildNet Africa properties we recognize that wildlife property types are as diverse and unique as the people seeking to acquire them, so our focus lies in finding the right property type for you and acting in your best interests through the acquisition process.

 There is no other Estate Agent in Southern Africa who offers such a wide range of experience and options for the prospective purchaser, so should your interest lie in a private land holding or in operating a commercial entity within the wildlife sector, WildNet Africa properties is here to assist in guiding you through the process by focusing on your requirements. We do not only show the benefits, we will also flag the not so obvious risk areas that you may encounter.

 These are long term investments involving substantial time and capital inputs, it is therefore critical to determine upfront what best suits the particular investors needs. There is a very wide range of wildlife property types and sizes available in Africa, we therefore begin by investing significant time in understanding your needs and objectives in order to present options that are most likely to suit your requirements.
