This beautiful wilderness farm, approximately 20km from the Pakhuis Pass, offers all the wonderful features of the Cederberg, such as beautiful rock formations, indigenous fauna and flora, clear starlit skies, absolute peace and tranquillity, plus TWO rivers – the Doring River (perennial) on the boundary, and the Brandewyn River (seasonal).
Undeveloped, it offers an incredible opportunity to a group of hikers, mountain bikers, rock climbers, river rafters (seasonal) or nature lovers to develop an off-the-grid mountain haven and/or campsite.
