Tankwa Heaven

If you are looking for a piece of heaven with no pollution, no crowds, no traffic and where the stars are still bright and clear to see? Look no further than this lifestyle farm in the Tankwa Karoo. Located approximately 130 km North of Ceres (48 km North of the famous Tankwa Padstal), this property offers the Tankwa Karoo at its best. Almost out of character for this harsh desert area, the farm has water in abundance, supplied by 7 boreholes (ranging from depths of between 10 and 65 metres) and a perennial fountain. Excess water from the fountain flows into an earthen dam. It is needed for only one of the boreholes to be equipped with a solar pump, supplying water for household and animal use. The farm is situated just off the R355 between Ceres and Calvinia and within close travelling distance from the new site where Afrikaburn will be hosted from 2021 onwards. With lots of trees to provide shading and with a good supply of water available, a rustic camp site consisting of 10 sites (no electricity) and a communal ablution block is in the process of being developed. The farm has a 3-bedroom house, a shed, various storage rooms, a room for tools and equipment, various outbuildings, a chicken coop, an old pigsty and two labourer cottages. A third labourer cottage needs renovation. Electricity is supplied by solar panels with a battery bank to maintain constant supply. Reserve supply of electricity is provided by an 8 kVA Deutz Fahr powerplant. Warm water for the main house is supplied by a solar geyser with a butane gas geyser as back up supply in overcast conditions. With jackal proof fencing around 80% of the borders of the farm and several smaller stock retention pens the farm offers functional infrastructure for stock keeping. Game (springbuck, oryx and kudu) roams the farm in varying numbers. A limited number of stock (sheep and goats) is included in the transaction. The farming enterprise is VAT registered and for sale as a going concern.
