Our Story

Founded in 1992, Safland Property Group is proudly Namibian, with its headquarters in Windhoek. Our beginning is a story of significant growth, challenges and triumphs.

Our journey from 1992 – when Safland was founded in Pretoria, South Africa – is a story of significant growth, challenges and triumphs. Commercial and retail property leasing and development of mainly auto-related property was just the beginning.

The true transformation started in 2011, when we relocated our headquarters to Windhoek, Namibia. Here our visionary and CEO, Kallie van der Merwe, completely changed the property landscape in only six years. The timing of our arrival was impeccable as funding was more accessible and Namibia was in need of the products and services brought in.

We have made a visible difference in the Namibian property landscape by defining and realising development opportunities; understanding the African consumer market; building and improving community nodes; rehabilition of dilapidated buildings; creating retail, commercial and distribution centre blueprints for Africa; and forging strong collaboration partnerships.
