Roads are constructed with a compacted and rolled G5 gravel top layer. Several low water drifts, as well as a 1 in 100-year flood bridge and storm water drainage system have been constructed to complete the infrastructure package. Soon the new flood bridge close to Moditlo Lodge, crossing the Mbezi river will be completed. All the infrastructure has been expertly installed to make your drive home an absolute pleasure.
