An international entrepreneur and philanthropist is finalising a sale agreement with the owners of Erindi private game reserve.
The buyer, Alberto Baillères is a highly respected Mexican business leader and philanthropist, who is president of the multi-national consortium BAL Group.
Baillères has experience with managing several wildlife protection ranches in different parts of the world.
The transaction is still subject to Namibian Competition Commission (NCC) approval, and other contract-related conditions. All other governmental and regulatory approvals have been obtained and complied with in full.
Baillères’s intention is to continue Erindi’s activities in eco-conservation and the preservation of flora and fauna species that are unique and an essential part of African culture and heritage, including some rare and endangered species.
The number of jobs at Erindi will be preserved and within this number, new and better-remunerated opportunities are reported to be created in the country, directly and indirectly.
Baillères’s aim is to upgrade and enhance Erindi, creating a world-class attraction and protecting its wildlife by implementing international best practices in anti-poaching and conservation initiatives.
The government responded professionally, efficiently and promptly, and were scrupulous throughout the process.
