Property Description

After more than 35-years in private ownership, this ± 1500Ha jewel of the Waterberg located between Vaalwater & Lephalale (Ellisras) is unmistakably one of the most beautiful settings you will ever get to see and experience.

Properties like these are seldom seen in the market so this opportunity is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure ownership of a portion of true Waterberg pride.

Rich in historical value no doubt as reflected in well-documented rock-paintings as well as other landmarks found here but it is however the vast splendour and natural beauty that will leave you totally mesmerized here.

Gigantic cliffs and impressive rock formations in conjunction with crystal clear waterfalls, mountain streams and dams producing scenes & settings similar to those experienced in fairy-tales, the true beauty thereof almost impossible to capture & reflect within a summary of words and pictures as we are trying to do here.
