MAGNIFICENT TANKWA KAROO FARM

Bordering the Tankwa Karoo National Park, the farm presents the perfect opportunity for development as a unique, eclectic retreat. A sanctuary for pollution-, noise-, crowd-, and hustle-fatigued city dwellers needing soul-space, writers and poets, astronomers, nature lovers, birders, and those hankering after the serenity, silence and seclusion of an authentic off-the-beaten-track destination.

The farm offers the best of the best of the Tankwa. A large portion of the Skoorsteenberg (Chimney Mountain) - the sentinel guarding over the Karoo - is part of the farm. With two strong perennial springs, and vast plains where game roam unhindered, this share of earth’s wondrous bounty is - exceptional.

The Tankwa Karoo - a different world, a different place ...

A place where one can slip back in time to an ancient world where peace, seclusion, breathtaking sunsets and the brightest stars in Africa are riches the time-honoured ‘Tankwanians’ value above all else. A place where the horizons, infinite spaces and skies are uncluttered, unrestrained and unbounded. Where the lightness of being is profound - definitive. Where free spirits gather annually and the bold and battle-weary oft-times go solo to nourish the soul.

A world where strange barren moonscapes of shale rock can morph into a sea of flowers. Where birders go searching for rare endemic species (188 species identified), botanists find unique indigenous plants, satellite spotters and stargazers never stop gazing, and a world where fresh air is ... fresh air.
