Scroll down to read about our five private building sites (footprints) each with unique and breathtaking panoramas.

This very exclusive and private country estate overlooks the ocean, Benguela Cove, Bot River Lagoon, Fisherhaven, Hemel en Aarde Valley, Kleinmond, Betty's Bay and Arabella Golf and Country Estate.

The Department of Environmental Affairs has granted permission to Jackals Dans to build five additional dwellings on the property. Jackals Dans is amongst just a handful of residential lifestyle estate developments in the Cape to have received full government approval to proceed as planned.

No more dwellings will be permitted, so this is one of the most exclusive residential communities in the country - only six houses on 250 hectares. And only three left!

Each sectional title secures the buyer unlimited access to the entire 250HA property, and the opportunity to build a private home, subject to low-impact architectural guidelines.  Although these guidelines will be managed by an independent architectural firm, buyers may involve their own architects on the layout and design.  Our guidelines simply ensure that your built environment blends seamlessly into the surrounding fynbos.

Plans are also underway to establish an olive grove on about 20HA on the eastern boundary. Olive trees grow compatibly with fynbos and income derived will go towards the general maintenance and upkeep of the Estate, thus reducing levies.

 Three sectional titles are still available for purchase. Whether you are interested in living here year round or simply having your weekends and holidays to escape from the city rat race to 250 HA of pristine fynbos, sporting fun, heavenly peace and stunning views, please contact us. Prices vary by location.

Jackals Dans is located a mere one hour drive from Cape Town Airport - you will be home about 12km before you reach Hermanus (avoid the weekend congestion into town). Relax on your patio and enjoy the incredible views overlooking the ocean, BotRiver Lagoon, Arabella and Hemel en Aarde Valley.

Only an hour's drive from Cape Town International Airport.
Conveniently close in reality to golf, spa, beach, ocean diving, lagoon water sports and Hermanus shopping, yet secluded, secure and private in feeling.

If you're a city person, you know that getting away from it all is important, but here you can stay longer and relax more knowing that you have the choice of high-speed wireless internet, DSTV and mobile phone access (3G is excellent from everywhere on the property  due to the mobile phone towers on our mountain).

Site 1: The Waterhole

This site is situated near the waterhole and enjoys sweeping views over both ocean and Hemel 'n Aarde Valley, including the majestic Babylon Tower (where former environmental minister Valli Moosa has thousands of hectare) and across the Botriver lagoon. Within 150 m of the waterhole and its visitors, but not close enough to disturb them.

Site 2:  The Stonehenge

So named for its amazing rock monoliths, reminiscent of Britain's Stonehenge. This location is slightly higher in elevation than The Waterhole, giving it sweeping views over the whole area. It has broad views of both ocean and Hemel en Aarde Valley. Building site is nestled on the slopes of its own private mountain slope and will embody the huge rocks in both building and landscaping. A very special and magical place.


 

Site 3: The Ravine

Set on the lower slopes among swaths of magnificent fynbos. Very quiet and private scenario; the river runs below and buck can sometimes be spotted grazing on the other side of the river. Waterfalls and small pools abound in the ravine. Restful views over the bay, the opposite mountain slopes, Botriver lagoon and Arabella. Overlooks the original homestead.

    


 

Site 4: The Outlook - 1

Lower in elevation than the other footprints, this more westerly location affords expansive ocean views including the famous Hangklip near Betty's Bay. Wonderful scenic panorama over the Botriver lagoon and Kleinmond on one side and on the other side to Hemel 'n Aarde Valley. Set among its own sea of pristine fynbos, it has easy access from the Main Road.

 


 

Site 5: The Outlook - 2

Situated at the same level but separated by a rocky ridge from Outlook 1, this location affords similarly expansive ocean views including the famous Hangklip near Betty's Bay. Wonderful scenic panorama over the Botriver lagoon and Kleinmond on one side and on the other side to Hemel 'n Aarde Valley.
