As a specialist in the marketing of game ranches and nature reserves, I come across hundreds of game ranches. This particular game reserve found a special place in my heart…The earth dams and the amount of water on this property is just indescribable. The natural tranquility, the beauty and the effect of calmness that comes over you when you are standing on the banks of the river or on the jetty at the dams are overwhelming. Looking at the developments and the planning that went into the planning and seeing it is as today cannot be put into words. The property is well balanced in terms of the mountainous terrain, the Serengeti-alike plains and the 3 rivers that passes through this 2645 hectares of natural beauty. Any nature lover will have to go far to find an equivalent to this property.
