Farms in the Kgalagadi, as this one, seldom come up in the property market. The size makes it unique, since later developed farms tend to be 6x6km, and even smaller. Furthermore, farms that were fully developed and grazed to higher levels, are struggling with bush encroachment, and dwindling grazing capacity, such as in the Ghanzi and Molopo farms areas. The opportunity to sub-divide into smaller farms, do exist, but was it our opinion that the uniqueness of this property lies in its size.
A variety of indigenous game is roaming the area: eland, gems buck, hartebeest, kudu, blue wildebeest and ostrich. A variety of other small game can be spotted frequently on drives, like porcupine, duiker, steenbok, squirrels and dassies. Larger birdlife include eagles, falcons and owls. Predators like cheetah, leopard and wild dogs have been spotted on the farm. Lions did enter the farm, twice during the period we had cattle on the farm.
- In the middle of the farm, where the bore-hole first described, is located, there is an engine room.
- Two boreholes
- The first borehole was drilled in the center of the farm, 350m deep, steel casing to the bottom, static level 118m, 22cubes per hour, started with a tds +/- 10 000, but later stabilising on tds +/- 17 000.
- A second borehole was drilled around a year ago, 250m deep, steel casing to the bottom, with small water. We did not yet make effort to test the tds, or the strength of the water.
- Total of 4 boreholes that can produce water suitable for animal consumption currently. Only one is equipped at the moment.
The vegetation varies greatly from a small pan-like area with huge camel thorn trees in the east to grass plains with camel thorn trees in the middle of the farm.
