The farm is nearby rectangular, the boundary of which is fenced with normal stock-proof fencing.
The farm is divided into 2 stock-proof camps.
Water at the farm is sourced from 4 installed boreholes, only 3 in use (3 solar submersible pumps)at a depth of 30-120 m to 4 reservoirs (1 cement dam, 3 PVA tanks), ensuring a constant water supply to all areas in need.
Landscapes include level grass/bush plains, sand dunes, minor hills. The bulk of the farm can be regarded as relatively flat.
Electricity is sourced by means of a solar panel/inverter set.
The soil type mainly includes level gravel-like areas and sandy areas. The bulk of the farm comprises a combination of Desert sand and Leptosols.
Leptosols typically form in actively eroding landscapes, especially in hilly or undulating areas that cover much of the central, north-western, and southern parts of Namibia. These coarse-textured soils are characterized by their limited depth caused by the presence of predominantly hard rock which is highly calcareous with 30cm of the surface. Leptosols are the shallowest soils in Namibia and they often contain significant amounts of gravel. As a result, their water holding capacity is low, and vegetation is often subject to drought. Rates of water run-off and water erosion can be high when heavy rains fall. At best, these soils can support low densities of livestock and wildlife.
Desert sand is formed from wind-blown sand that usually extends to a depth of at least 1 meter. Sand makes up more than 70% of the ground. The sandy texture allows water to drain through the soil rapidly leaving very little water at depths to which the roots of most plants can reach and therefore few nutrients are retained. The loose structure of sand means there is little run-off and water erosion, although it makes the soil susceptible to wind erosion.
The vegetation is well suited for small stock, game, and cattle farming, and can be regarded as a good mixture for the area, with an even spread of the following:
"Long-legged Bushman" grass
"Short-legged Bushman" grass
The official grazing capacity is 1:8 per SSU and 1:45 per LSU
