This magnificently beautiful 3753 hectares potential game farm, currently being used as a Wildlife Nature College, is rich in plant and animal life, as the 200 bird species will testify. Located in Ladismith, the agricultural centre of the western Klein Karoo region of the Western Cape, this farm is situated adjacent to a series of fertile and irrigated valleys.

The well conserved property is ideally situated for game breeding or tourism opportunities with ample accommodation and infrastructure, more than enough to upgrade it to tourism facilities or game breeding facilities.

The undulating landscape supports thousands of species of veld flowers, turning this into a spectacle during flower season.

The alluvial banks of a river has a high yield of lucerne offering 32.5ha under irrigation and providing ample feed for an active animal breeding program.

This peaceful area is malaria free, low impact of animals diseases and not conducive to veld fires. The rich diversity of indigenous animals are suitably adapted to the environment. Like the plans of the Little Karoo, the animals indigenous to this area are specially adapted and easily survive dry cycles.

3151 ha of this farm is currently in the process of being proclaimed as Nature Reserve, with the process being 99% completed. This will offer ideal opportunities for tourism & game farming related operations.

The farm offers a total of 32.5 ha currently under lucerne. Thereof, 18.3 ha is incorporated for water irrigation and 14.2 ha is not incorporated, irrigation being done from borehole.

A variety of wildlife is available on the farm with approximately 40 Springbok, 30 Red Hartebeest, 5 Burchell Zebras (presumably all mares) and 20 Ostrich. Other animals include Kudu, Gemsbok/Oryx, Eland, Duikers, Steenbok, Aardvark, Aardwolf, Porcupine, Black Back Jackal, Caracal, African Wildcat, Polecat, Cape Mountain Leopard to mention but a few.

Plenty of water is available to the farm with 8 boreholes in total plus a fountain. The boreholes offer the following:

o1 x 17,000 l / h with 3.5 kW pump used for irrigation

o1 x 25,000 l / h with 5.5 law pump used for irrigation

o3 x 1500 l / h 0.37 horsepower used for domestic purposes

o1 x windmill with 2.5 inch cylinder located in veld

o1 x 3000 l borehole located in veld

o1 x 1000 l / h with 1.1 kW pump with generator used for domestic purposes (located in veld)

Two thirds of the reserve borders have game fencing and the remainder of 8 km is standard stock fences.

The farm offers a total of 6 houses with a total of 25 rooms (20 of which are en-suite) made up of 4 large / main houses and 2 management houses. There is also 1 dormitory style building with kitchen, lecture room and bathrooms which sleep 20 people. 3 separate workers houses, stables which have been converted into a lecture hall and offices, 2 garages accommodating 2 vehicles per building, 2 workshops, 2 smaller storage buildings, 1 large store of 180m, numerous kraals (animal pens), strong stone cattle pens, stables and camps and pigsties.
