Property Description

Own a piece of paradise. This amazing property must be at the top of the list of beautiful farms in the Eastern Free State situated between Ficksburg and Fouriesburg in the Witteberg mountain range, only 70km from Clarens, and this registered nature reserve comprises of mountaintop and valley terrain covering an area of 1415 ha and held under three title deeds.
It is seldom that a property like this is available on the market. Senior officials from the Department of Nature Conservation made a comment "you do not get more beautiful than this!" on a recent visit.

Arable land is approximately 150 hectares. Much of the arable land is adjacent to two large dams which could be used for irrigation purposes. The dams are stocked with bass and carp. All the water sources originates on the reserve and is therefore unpolluted. The neighbours farm with vegetables, maize, sunflower and soy beans.

This is also the perfect area for cherries, asparagus and apples to name but a few. Bottling water is another opportunity.

The farm is suitable for farming Black Truffle which requires very little work and can deliver an income of up to R2 million per hectare from 5 years onwards since planting. Included in the sale is also a small snailery and a few thousand compost worms. Both of these could be developed into a commercial business.

The reserve has unlimited potential for game breeding, eco-tourism and hunting by both local and international hunters. It can also be used as a cattle and/or sheep farm or simply as a lifestyle farm. This is the perfect environment to breed disease free buffalo as well as sable antelope, exotic wildebeest species, bontebok, etc. Eco tourism could include 4x4 trails, abseiling, game viewing, zip lines... The potential is truly only limited by a lack of imagination.

The reserve is renowned for its scenic setting and boasts numerous wildlife species. There are breath-taking views in every direction, over the reserve and beyond and including the Maluti Mountains of Lesotho. Tourists may use any of the four hiking trails to explore the reserve by foot, horseback or mountain bikes.

Many towering sandstone cliffs, springs and perennial and seasonal streams are found on the reserve. A seasonal waterfall drops into a deep wooded gorge. Three dams offer area shelter to an abundance of bird life. Even during the recent severe drought were we able to offer water to other farmers. During normal rainfall years the reserve receives an above average rainfall of 800 - 1000 mm. The climate is mild during the warm months and we usually receive some snow during winter.

Biologically it lies in a major ecological transitional zone resulting in a great diversity of habitats (both Drakensberg and Free State High Veld vegetation) and rare plant and animal communities with an affinity for rocky places, water courses and mixed vegetation, e.g. baboon, caracal, serval, genet, jackal, fox, otter, mongoose, dassie, porcupine and many others. There are also many bird species associated with high mountains such as grey-wing francolin, ground woodpecker, stone chat, rock thrush, orange breasted rock jumper, rock kestrel, malachite and great double collared sunbirds, bald ibis, gymnogene and black eagle.

The reserve has one of the best geological exposures of the top of the Karoo geological system.

In terms of safety aspects it is hidden in the mountain range with sheer cliffs on one side. The access road ends at the reserve entrance so it does not border any roads and is surrounded by other farms making it extremely safe and private.

This is a low maintenance farm and is suitable for either a full time farmer or a lifestyle farmer. We currently employ two male and one female worker.

Hunting is currently managed by a very experienced operator so the new owner does not have to be experienced in the hunting business if he/she wishes to continue with it. He is paid on a commission basis only.

Price: R21 100 000.00 (Game and cattle such as 170 top quality Nguni cattle are included in the selling price... List available on request)
