Your Safety and Comfort Is Our Priority

As a residential family estate, security and privacy are of paramount importance.  Sanlam Limited, the owners of The Rest, have invested millions of Rands in replacing and upgrading infrastructure and various systems to a world-class level. The estate is accessed via two permanently manned gatehouses that are equipped with CCTV cameras and biometric technology.

The estate is surrounded by a new, state-of-the-art intruder detection electric fence spanning the 8km perimeter.  The fence is monitored 24/7 by a dedicated team of on-site security guards, who also regularly patrol the estate and maintain ongoing radio contact with the Security Control Room.

Since the investment by Sanlam Limited and under new ownership, no security incidents have been reported at The Rest Nature Estate since 2015.

Access Controls and CCTV

A high tech biometric access control system with vehicle access booms and pedestrian turnstiles monitors all movement into and out of the estate.

IP CCTV cameras installed at strategic points view and record all access and egress controls including facial recognition.

Guarding Services

Thorburn Security was appointed in November 2014 to provide dedicated guarding, patrolling and response services to The Rest. Thorburn was chosen due to their proven expertise in estate security management for several prestigious estates in South Africa.
