Property Description

Elandsrivier Lifestyle Farm

Location
The farm sits on the southern side of the foothills of Cockscomb Peak which forms part of the Groot Winterhoek mountain range i.e. west of Uitenhage. The property is easily accessed via a gravel road requiring a vehicle with good ground clearance (bakkie etc).

Size
Made up of 1 title, the property is approximately 107 hectares in extent.

Description
This property falls in an area which is perhaps one of the last few stretches of pristine Eastern Cape wilderness outside of the Baviaanskloof. The surrounding topography is as dramatic as it comes, with a series of deep drainage lines with streams and cliff faces interspersed with elevated ridges and flat well grassed plateaus. The property even boasts a spectacular seasonal waterfall (albeit located on the boundary) which falls over the face of a deep overhang/cave which is surrounded by a small indigenous forest.

Veld types
This farm is ecologically diverse consisting mainly of the grassy fynbos biome associated with sour veld areas and then small pockets of subtropical thicket biome plus a small pocket of montaine forest biome in the lower lying valleys, and lastly the grassland biome.
Grass species found are predominately those associated with the sour fynbos biome and are dominated by the aristida species, a healthy covering of Themeda, intermittent stands of hetrapogon and merxmuella.
As mentioned there is a healthy stand of large indigenous trees which makes up the forest area around the cave and these trees are regularly fed water by the seasonal waterfall.

Rainfall
A transition summer/winter rainfall area with an annual average of 600mm (conservatively).

Improvements
There is good access as one only travels a very short distance off the main gravel road to reach the farm. There are no through roads. The stock fencing is mostly in a fair condition.

Wildlife species
Includes: Kudu (transient), Bushbuck, Mt. Reedbuck, Klipspringer, Grysbok, Bush Pig, as well as other smaller mammals.
Bird species of special interest include Cape rock-jumper, Orange-breasted Sunbird, as well as Black and Martial Eagle and various other birds of prey.

Conclusion
True wilderness in Africa is becoming an increasingly rare commodity and here we have a wilderness area within a 100km distance of Port Elizabeth. The property offers absolute solitude, unparalleled privacy and all of this at an affordable price.
