Estate Rules

Siyabonga Tours were appointed to run a Shuttle Service on the Estate in order to transport Domestic
staff to and from their place of employment, in order to ensure that Domestic’s arrive and depart their
places of employment as required.  This service ensures that Domestics do not have to transverse the
Estate when either entering or departing the Estate.

In case of any emergency or access problems including booms or access devices, please contact the Zimbali Control Room on +27 (0)32 538-4200 or +27 (0)76 336-3713.
