INFORMATION FOR BIRDERS:
The farm is situated in Greater Karoo where birders can expect to find
birds unique to the area. According to Roberts Bird App the area is home to just over 200 species.
The farm's proximity to the river, which attracts many water species in the rainy season, and the lush garden of the homestead makes for excellent diversity in bird species. One can easily clock 50 species in one morning sitting quietly and patiently in the beautiful garden!
