PPP Investment Opportunity: Ratelrivier Farmstead: Agulhas National Park

In line with SANParks’ Strategic Plan for Commercialisation, SANParks intends to form a Public Private Partnership (PPP) in which it gives a selected private party the rights to the commercial use of the Ratelrivier Farmstead in the Agulhas National Park.

Update: Please note that the draft agreement will be e-mailed to you when you pre-register for the compulsory site visit.

SANParks invites prospective investors and operators to submit detailed bids in line with SANParks’ mandate and objectives for this PPP opportunity. Interested parties will be expected to meet certain minimum criteria in order to qualify.

SANParks will enter into a PPP agreement with the winning bidder for a period likely to provide a fair return on investment for the private party. In return, the private party will meet agreed operating, development, refurbishment, broad-based black economic empowerment (BEE) and environmental obligations, and pay a PPP fee to SANParks.
