Property Description

Large game farm for sale with spectacular views of Darlington Lake and Sundays River Frontage.

Location
The farm is situated 120 km from Port Elizabeth. Take the R75 past Uitenhage and then turn right at the Sapkamma turn off and head in the direction of Darlington Dam.

Size
Made up of 5 titles, the property is approximately 6447 ha in extent.

Description
The farm is situated south of Darlington Dam and shares a common boundary with the Greater Addo Elephant National Park. As one enters this roughly rectangular shaped farm the terrain goes from being flat with gently undulating hills to becoming a wide dramatic valley running in between two large mountain ranges and finally giving way to 10km's of Sundays River frontage. This spectacular stretch of perennial river is home to a number of hippos. Panoramic views are enjoyed from the high lying areas, over looking the vast Karoo plains and Darlington Dam to the North and distant views of the spectacular Grootwinterhoek Berge and Cockscomb (all of Baviaans Kloof fame) to the South.

Veld types
This farm is ecologically diverse consisting of a mosaic of vegetation types ranging from:
succulent rich karroid broken veld interspersed with excellent valley bushveld browse in the form of acacia's, jacket plum, common guarri, and spekboom. Grass cover occurs along the drainage lines and on top of the mountain slopes. Grazing is also supplemented by a variety of edible karoo bushes and can be supplemented through feeding lucerne grown on the irrigated lands.

Indigenous cycads, survivors from an ancient era, are also found on this farm.
