Leeuwdrift

Leeuwdrift is one of 4 adjoining farms situated south of Adelaide, in the heart of Eastern Cape Game country. These farms all belong to the same family, a family who have toiled hard over the years to create an unbelievable opportunity for someone with vision, to develop their dream farm. The property is 4637 ha / 11 450 acre block ( 9 titles ) in a perfect setting in the renowned Smaldeel region with over 15km of Koonap River flowing throughout, creating a natural rich vein of Acacia Karoo and River Willow along with sweet palatable grasses attracting abundant game and birdlife. This property could be an unbelievable Game Farm as it has all the natural features one looks for. The farms are currently livestock farms and still have their internal fences and water systems in place with many strategically positioned boreholes, tanks, and troughs. There are 3 houses on the property, the main homestead with its beautiful garden, is situated close to the river with an area of established irrigation (45ha in total ) which is always an attraction for game and for excess Lucerne to be used as feed. The Farm Wagon Drift has 84 400m³ per annum is registered for irrigation purposes. The property would need to be game-fenced externally and possibly a few breeding camps internally, but this property already attracts Kudu, Waterbuck, Nyala, Bushbuck, Gemsbuck, Impala, Mountain Reedbuck, Fallow Deer, Warthog, etc. There is the potential to expand the property making this a unique opportunity as there are not many undeveloped opportunities such as this left in the Eastern Cape. This property is in the Albany Thicket Biome. The combination of both edible bushveld and the region's highly sought-after natural grass makes it ideal for the Big 5. The presence of bigger Eastern Cape game reserves and the Big 5 emphasizes the fact that this area is a sought-after, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It could be possible to increase the size of this property by purchasing some neighboring portions. This is a seriously good option for any serious Game Farmers.
