Description
This distinguishing 8,469-hectare typical Kalahari farm is well-maintained and idyllically situated on the northern banks of the mighty Orange River. This farm has so much to offer as you can integrate livestock farming with some irrigation.

Farming in this summer rainfall area consists predominantly of livestock like cattle, sheep, and game farming. This farm, however, is a cattle farm of note for the dedicated stock farmer.
Vegetation consists mainly of a good mixture of highly nutritious grasses with diverse vegetation known as Kalahari/Karoo flora. Prevalent trees like Camel Thorn (Kameeldoring), Black Thorn (Swarthaak), Shepherd tree (Witgatboom) occur with dense riverine thicket on the banks of the river. The grazing capacity is 1:18 LSU. It is a disease-free area with a healthy climate.
The topography varies from adulating red dunes, rocky hills, and the farm extends gradually down towards the fertile sandy-loam banks of the so-called Green Kalahari.

This farm is fortunate to boast with 15-hectare registered water usage rights (15,000 cub metre) which are at present not used, but lucerne does extremely well in the sandy-loam soil and warm dry climate. An approved ploughing certificate is approved to develop an already identified 70-hectare.
Water is the lifeblood of farming in the Kalahari and due to the harsh climate cattle consume a lot of water during the hot summer months. Fresh water is pumped from the river to various reservoirs and tanks widely distributed across the entire farm to the 21 inner camps. The electricity costs to pump the water is approximately R4,500.00 per month with the water cost running at R6 000 per year. This well-designed system operates well and hazzle free. All inner fences are in a well-kept condition due to proper maintenance and continuous inspection.

The spacious farmstead consists of a huge double storey house with 4 bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas, braai room, kitchen, and slaughtering facility. From the upper level you overlook the lush pastures which contribute to a special ambience of this beautiful Kalahari surrounds. Water for household is supplied via a purifying system. Solar panels provided adequate power to the house and outbuildings through a 6 KVA converter. The whole area is safely and securely fenced in and electrified.

Farming infrastructure consists of two large sheds as storing facilities. Well-designed piped cattle handling facilities with convenient loading ramp add to the safe and easy handling of cattle.

At present springbuck roam on pastures close to the homestead, but the farm`s typical Kalahari vegetation can support a diverse range of game species.

The pace is unhurried, the vegetation is pristine, the cattle is healthy and in good condition, the location is safe and secured and the blue skies stretch as far as the eye can see - or for where it is intercepted by the majestic Camel Thorn trees!
