Gorgeous 385 Ha Game Farm in the Vaalwater Region NEW LISTING


 

This gorgeous 385 Ha Game Farm is situated 230 kilometers from Pretoria in the heart of the Waterberg biosphere in the Vaalwater region, Limpopo. The topography is undulating with small ridges and the habitat is a mix of sweet and sour veld with a wide variety of trees. This game farm hosts a boutique lodge designed to provide its guests with an upmarket, yet comfortable bush experience. The lodge is fully furnished in a contemporary safari style and ready as a start-up business or as a large family home with plenty of extra accommodation for visiting family and friends.  The overall architecture is that of contemporary African, created through the use of thatch and natural stone.  The lodge has been designed to fit in with the natural surroundings while at the same time maximizing the bush experience.  The well-spaced buildings, open-plan design, and high ceilings provide a feeling of both space and connectedness. The lodge has a number of living areas to cater to different needs and/or groups allowing you the choice for quiet contemplation, relaxing with friends, entertainment, or sociable gatherings.  It is also well suited to celebrating special occasions. The 385-hectare farm is home to a variety of game and is blessed with a river that is usually full over the summer months.  There are a few magnificent spots along the river to enjoy a picnic, watch the sunset or enjoy a candlelit dinner under the stars. The farm has several demarcated game viewing routes where you can experience the varied landscape and get sight of the animals, often near the watering holes, where the animals come in to drink. The entire farm is fenced off and within this, there are two game camps: 1 x 30 hectare fenced in and electrified game camp, close to the main lodge and 1 x 80 hectare fenced-in camp at the other end of the farm. The farm would be sold fully furnished with its farm equipment.
