This rare Karoo farm of 3724-hectares is a truly remarkable piece of land - currently chiefly a Boer Goat and Dorper sheep farm, but also boasting with exceptional natural beauty as a potential game reserve with top quality grazing and browsing vegetation!
The topography is typical Karoo-like adulating hills with apron veldt and fertile low lying flood plains, with the unique and picturesque Kariega river flowing after occasional rains.
Vegetation consists mainly of natural mixed Karoo shrubs like karoo bush, ganna, anker- and silver karoo, succulents, yellow pomegranate bush, planted pasture salt bush, dense riverine thicket, mainly Acacia thorn, Karee and Tamarisk trees. Natural Karoo veldt has a balance that enables it to tolerate fluctuations in climate and grazing pressure. The farm lies in an area where mostly summer rainfall occurs. The carrying capacity is 1:24 LSU or 1:6 SSU.
When the inner camps' layout and farming infrastructure was planned, the diverse veldt types, the topography and variety of vegetation were all considered. Four boundaries are jackal proof fenced. The natural veldt is well maintained and consists of 12 inner camps with ample livestock drinking water. Some fencing is in good repair. The farm is suitable to produce high quality sheep, Boer Goats, and game. About 140 Springbuck and numerous Kudu, with indigenous small antelope like Steenbok and Common Duiker, also roam the area.
Sufficient water for livestock is obtained from windmills and solar panel pumps. Water is stored in dams or JoJo tanks supplying quality drinking water to the livestock and game. Adjacent to the riverbanks are old arable lands.
The farmhouse boasts with a large stoep. There is also a fully furnished stone-built hunters' cottage. Solar power supplies electricity. There are 1 labourers' house.
Outbuildings include storage shed, workshop and various livestock handling kraals across the entire farm, as well as a small stock dipping kraal.
The roads and tracks to the outskirts on the farm are good and well-maintained.
This farm with all the necessary livestock infrastructure, can undoubtedly be transformed into a sought-after game reserve.
