Our farm is situated in the Western Cape, 200 km east of Cape Town and 80 km from Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of the African continent, whose meridian is the official boundary between the Indian and Atlantic oceans. The nearest town is Swellendam which is 20 minutes away from the farm. From Cape Town a scenic two-hour drive on the national motorway in the direction of the Garden Route will take you to our farm. The region has a Mediterranean-type climate.

Surrounded by natural beauty, the place is a paradise for Nature lovers. Recreational facilities include canoeing, swimming, fishing, hiking, horseback riding and other outdoor activities. Tracts of the land could also be opened up to tourism. Ideal sites for developing holiday cottages are found on the banks of the river.

The property comprises about 234 hectares. A 2 km section of the Riviersonderend forms part of the boundary and runs past the farmhouse. The water comes from the Theewaterskloof and is always available. At this particular point the river is 80 m across and 8 m deep. This means 300 000 cubic metre (three hundred thousand cubic metre) of water are always available.

Tree plantations – mostly eucalyptus – cover about two thirds of the property. There is sufficient land left for other commercial projects, such as a nursery, compost, shavings, eucalyptus oil. Or realize your own dream. The river banks are lined with old trees. In close proximity to the main house we built a sawmill comprising a large hall, where several species of eucalyptus are sawn into planks and boards. These are sought after throughout the Western Cape and are used in the manufacture of indoor and outdoor furniture, doors, window frames, and floors.

The place is ideal to grow cannabis for medical use. The farm is at the end of a valley. That's why it is possible to keep the gate closed.

Next door to the main house is a self-contained apartment overlooking the river.

Price of the entire Farm 15 Million Rand.
