Huge farm

Made up of 2 titles, the property is a shade under 2909 hectares in extent.

One of the last true stretches of pristine Wilderness outside of the Baviaanskloof. Despite its relative proximity to the Urban centres of Uitenhage and Port Elizabeth, it remains extremely remote due to the formidable escarpment that guards the eastern access to the property. Stretching North from the Elandsrivier valley, the property climbs the foothills of the Groendal and Groot Winterhoek ranges to a summit point at 868m, before plunging down into the Kwazunga gorge where the river of the same name has carved itself a picturesque, meandering valley, a mere 200m above sea level.

The river itself is one of the prettier you will encounter and apparently even during the extended drought of the last 4 years, it maintained a healthy flow rate. In places it has formed large, white beaches.

Rainfall
The farm falls in a transition summer / winter rainfall area with an annual average of 500mm.

Improvements
There is very little development of any significance on the property. The remnants of a prefab labourer's cottage, and elevated shepherds hut, plus a small cattle kraal are the only remnants at intermittent attempts over the years to stock farm here. The current owner has developed a rudimentary, but very functional and picturesque camp site, which has a central lapa area, small kitchen area, flush toilet and donkey boiler powered shower, all behind reed screens. Water is pumped from the river to a slightly elevated 5000l tank which supplies the toilet, kitchen and shower.
The single access road is well maintained up to just prior to the property boundary.

Wildlife species
Includes: Kudu (abundant but transient), Bushbuck, Mt. Reedbuck, Klipspringer, Blue Duiker, Grysbok, Bush pig, Cape Mountain Leopard ( numerous sightings ) and Cape clawless Otter as well as other smaller mammals. In addition to we found a set of eland tracks. Red hartebees sightings
