Commiphora Eco Park is an ultra-low density residential development in a natureorientated
area. The 787 ha park contains plains, plateaus, open fields, natural pans and
earth dams. Its aim is to protect the fauna and flora of the land and to create a rural and
natural lifestyle for the inhabitants. The concept allows for the establishment of 52 full
title portions, each between 5 and 13 ha, a further 2 common areas of 283 ha, a service
unit and a landing strip. To ensure that the portions function jointly as a unit suitable for
the local wildlife, no internal demarcation measures are proposed, except around dwelling

The origin of the name Commiphora Eco Park is named for the various species of Commiphora tree in the park. The name derives from the Greek words “kommi”, which means gum and “phoros”, which means carrier. It refers to the fragrant bitter sap derived from the Commiphora myrrh tree and was used in healing salves, perfumes and incenses. Local vernacular also refers to it as “Kanniedood”.
Living close to nature in Commiphora will likewise be a healing experience. Tranquillity will salve the senses, and the perfume and incense of nature will bring calmness and
quietness to body and soul.
