But once you enter this pristine Karoo enclave; you will enjoy the remote heart of Africa! Let your experience become the memory of a lifetime as you discover and explore this rare and exclusive gem. Here you will enjoy the Karoo, a land of endless space, fresh air to clean your lungs, wall-to-wall silence and fiery sunsets that resemble celestial furnaces. These unique vastness, clear blue skies and unpolluted fresh air are assets that cannot be bought. This fully operational game enterprise falls within the Orange River catchment area and is drained north-eastwards by the Seekoei River, which meanders 7 kilometre through the farm. Numerous perennial pools supplies water to a wide variety of game and birds. Many moons ago about 20 hectare were irrigated from these pools and it is possible to do that today as well. Africa's famous fish eagle, whose cries echo over the riverine habitat are one of the many indigenous bird species. The farm is divided in two sections, South a 1000 hectare of typical Karoo plains, hills and 1 kilometre river frontage. The vegetation in this section falls under the Nama Karoo Biome which are dominated by Karoo shrubs and grasses providing quality natural grazing for the existing plains game like Oryx, Blesbuck, Cape Eland, Hartmann's Zebra, Ostrich and Springbuck. The typography of the Northern 1500 hectare consist of high rocky mountains, dolerite ridges, secluded valleys and is bordered by the Seekoei River. These landmarks ensure that the reserve not only boasts iconic Karoo scenery but also river and mountainous areas. This area are home to plenty Kudu, Red Heartbeest, Blesbuck, Red mountain Reedbuck, Impala, Burchell's Zebra and sparsely sighted Reindeer, which roam the entire area. All the game is tame and can be viewed at relative close proximity. Over time, the game population is prudently controlled and monitored to protect the vegetation and prevent overgrazing. The mountainous area is accessible by well-maintained 4x4 tracks which vary in gradient, length and difficulty. Various man-made earth dams together with windmills and perennial fountains supplies adequate drinking water to the game. The average rainfall is 411 mm per annum.
