A nature reserve in Ladismith in the Western Cape has recently come on to the market for R7m.
Naauw Kloof, a farm of approximately 2,766 hectares, belonged to the Ladismith Municipality and was proclaimed circa 1913, since having served as a nature reserve with, among others, a hiking trail ("The Klapperbos trail").
The property is split by the R62 road connecting Cape Town through the Klein Karoo to the Garden Route. It is situated approximately 3,5 hours from Cape Town International Airport and about 1,75 hours from George Airport.
The reserve is completely enclosed by jackal-proof fencing at the bottom with raised barbed wire on top. The roads within are all in a good condition, with a few mountain stream run-offs in need of general maintenance.
A shooting range on the property is presently rented out at a nominal fee to the local target shooting/hunters' club on a month-to-month basis.
The boundary fencing is about 21,6 km in extent, with five ground dams, three windmills, a cement dam and a borehole. Electricity is available from Eskom.
