Livestock lifestyle ecotourism farm for sale around Sutherland in the Northern Cape.
Tankwa Karoo, here you'll find big skies, distant horizons and never-ending views. Named after the seasonal Tankwa River the Tankwa Karoo is in the Valley between the Cederberg mountains and the Roggeveld mountains in the east.
The property is in the Roggeveld /Tankwa Karoo (between Matjiesfontein and Sutherland).about 290 km from Cape Town. The Farm is fenced, currently no game, but some infrastructure to introduce Game. Water is from a Borehole with a windmill, a big dam for the rainysaison and the Kranskraalriver has Water mostly during the cooler month from May to October. Recorded annual amounts are about 300 nm . not so bad for the Karoo .
The climate is Hot in summer and moderate in Winter. with the rainfall rather in winter than in Summer. the advantage is also to experience a few climate scenarios as the farm starts in the lowveld at about 500m sealevel and goes slowly up to the top of the Roggeveld Mountains to about 1300m sealevel.
It is a secluded beautiful piece of land offering opportunities for people who either like to do Sheep or Goatfarming, introducing some Game, or as pure naturelovers to secure their place in a karoo paradise, still for a reasonable price.
The temperatures there are not comparable to Sutherland. In the Tankwa Karoo it can go above 40 degrees in Summer and in winter I would say moderate mostly between 15 and 25 degrees, The closest Town Sutherland its about 35 km.
There is a wooden Cabin and another one (cementstones) , but nothing special. There is also a few hundered meters away an old StoneBuilding (Murasie). The Kranskraal river runs through the Farm and together with the Mountains, ravines and impressive waterfall creates a very scenic and spectacular environment. Close to the small waterfall is a Dieselpump. Up the river valley towards the mountain is another Waterfall - about 1 km walk. The Ouberg Pass is at the top .
Another advantage is that the Farm is the last one, so no through traffic at all, just Peace and silence all the way.
