LONDON, March 15, 2010 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating segment of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the addition of Mjejane Game Reserve to its global exchange network. The property is a breathtaking 10,000 acre (4,000 hectare) reserve within the world famous Kruger National Park.
Mjejane Game Reserve enjoys a privileged location overlooking the Crocodile River, and on completion later this year, will offer unparalleled “big five” game and bird viewing. It will feature a combination of two-, three- and four-bed apartments and is adjacent to the exclusive Mjejane Safari Lodge. Among the planned amenities at the Lodge are an elegant restaurant, pub, spa, gym, and elevated viewing hide, which owners and guests at the Mjejane Game Reserve also can enjoy.
Central to all activities is the proximity of all types of living creatures – from hippopotamuses and giraffes to tortoises to more than 500 species of birds. Guests can see herds of buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards, and numerous other game virtually on their doorstep.
"Mjejane is another significant southern African addition to our network of worldwide resorts,” said Darren Ettridge, vice president resort sales and service for Europe, Middle East, and Africa for Interval International. “This unique property respects the beauty of the existing natural habitat and allows visitors to experience the unspoiled surroundings and reconnect with nature.”
"It is our intention to make this development an international benchmark for the best practice in effective partnerships in the tourism sector," said Michael Whiting, director of Winchester Marketing, the company handling the sales and promotion of Mjejane. “Timesharing is going to continue to be a holidaying method of choice in South Africa. We knew of the reputation of Interval International and we wanted Mjejane affiliated with them.”
