With cliff faces on the edge of the mountain forming much of the farms boundary and a large open plateau on top of the mountain making up approximately 1/5 of the property.

Predominantly Acacia Karoo Thornveld with open Savannah structure on the plains and thicket in the drainage lines. The vegetation on the lower slopes of the mountain has a higher diversity of tree species with large Wild Olives, Gwarri and Rhus spp. all common.
