How Is It Possible To Buy Property In African National Parks And Game Reserves?

It's possible because these properties are a digital representation of the physical world using a map.

By creating a NFT for each plot available on the platform, Provably Protect allows anyone to own, buy and sell the digital, but not the physical, real estate. No rights of any sort are obtained on the actual physical real estate by purchasing the digital NFT.

It's all for a very good cause because 90% of the initial sale price and 8% of the secondary sale price of every digital property purchase gets contributed to a conservation organization on the frontlines of wildlife protection and preservation.

How Big Are The Digital Properties?

Africa is a continent of wide open spaces especially in the numerous national parks and game reserves that are found there.

So the minimum size for any plot is 1 Hectare (2.50 Acre) and most of the digital real estate properties are way bigger than that. Some in places like Etosha National Park are up to 900 Hectare (2223 Acre) each, just search the map above and you will find them.

The size of the properties are largely determined by the size of the reserve/park they are situated in and the road network in the particular area, each plot following the contours of the road as closely as possible.

How Many Digital Properties Are Available?

Provably Protect has not set an artificial upper limit on how many properties can be created because that is naturally capped by the road networks in each reserve. Each property must have at least one road as a border, so that will limit the total amount of properties that can be mapped.

Property location demand will also naturally limit property creation because once all the best locations are taken, some new buyers will rather own an existing property than request a new one, just as it happens in the real world property market.

The full list of areas that have properties for sale is available in the FAQ section 'Where Are The Digital Properties Situated?' below.

  • How Are The Prices For Each Digital Plot Determined?

    The prices for requested properties are determined by the length of the perimeter road of each property in metres (feet), multiplied by the dollar amount per metre (feet), which has been determined by Provably Protect for each national park or game reserve.

    So the plots with the most perimeter road will be the most expensive and the ones with the least will be cheaper, even if they may be larger in size overall.

    The reason it's done this way is because the properties with more perimeter road provide better opportunities for seeing wildlife, if the digital real estate owner were to ever visit the physical property on an African safari.

    After a requested property has been bought, the new owner sets the selling price if they decide to put it back on the market again for sale.

    How Does A Property Request Work?

    If you are interested in owning a digital plot in any of the areas in the list above that haven't yet been mapped by Provably Protect, please make a property request here...

    Only properties that have a road somewhere on their perimeter and don't include a rest camp, lodge or picnic area are allowed to be mapped, so if it's feasible, Provably Protect will make a concerted effort to map your requested digital property as soon as possible and make it available for you to buy.

    Which Conservation Organizations Are Supported?

    The conservation efforts of the owners of the physical property are supported by sales of Provably Protect digital properties. This helps their ability to make a meaningful difference to the protection and preservation of the national park or game reserve in which the digital real estate is situated.

    Without these organizations efforts the physical real estate might cease to exist in their current form as wildlife protection areas.

    What's The 10% Discount For Provably Protect Property Owners?

    When you buy a digital property, you become a member of the Provably Protect community, and you will be eligable for a 10% travel discount if you ever decide to go on an African safari to visit the physical area covered by your digital real estate.

    What About The Physical Properties?

    Buying and owning the digital property doesn't confer any rights at all regarding the actual physical real estate or property.

    What it does do is help the conservation efforts of the owners or protectors of the physical property themselves so that they can continue to conserve the wildlife in that area.

    Carbon Neutral: Each NFT Transaction Contributes Towards Reforestation

    Provably Protect NFTs are minted on the Polygon blockchain, which consumes a reasonably small amount of energy for each transaction compared to blockchains like Ethereum and Bitcoin.

    Estimates of the carbon footprint of a Polygon transaction vary from 0.3 grams (Source: Polygon blockchain blog) to 430 grams of CO2 (Source: Digiconomist).

    Ideally, NFT minting and transactions should be carbon neutral, especially for the conservation NFTs that Provably Protect specialises in.

    So, to ensure that Provably Protect minting and transactions on the Polygon chain are carbon neutral, we offset the upper transaction carbon footprint estimation of 430 grams of CO2, for every single NFT transaction that occurs on our marketplace.

    And we do this by contributing towards the planting of trees in forest areas of South Africa in the Western Cape.
