The Lonwabo Wildlife Estate, 530 hectares of game farm situated in the heart of the Eastern Cape, will be auctioned off by Rawson Auctions Western Cape this month. The farm has more than 250 animals.

The estate is in a magnifi cent condition surrounded by a strong South African savannah and rolling bushveld landscapes. The area receives on average 520mm of rainfall throughout the year.

The game farm is situated off the N2 , about 60km from Port Elizabeth . It also borders the Amakala Wild Reserve, as well as the Wycomvale International game farm.

The south side of the farm is 12km from the Addo Olifant Park, and is close to the Sondagsriver .

“On clear days you can see Port Elizabeth and at night PE’s fairytale lights from the farm,” said Tanya Jovanovski, franchisee of Rawson Auctions Western Cape.

“ It has low electricity consumption as a result of solar geyser water tanks at the homes and low energy light bulbs.”

“The approval for 70 houses to be built on between a 300m2 and 500m2 plots are already in place .”

Eskom electricity is available through a 300kw step-down transformer. “That Eskom is already supplying the farm with power is a huge plus. They no longer supply power to these types of development.”

The farm is fully fenced for the game, and has intersecting gravel roads. In terms of water supply, the farm comes with six boreholes– one of which is supplied with by a submersible pump. Water from the central reservoir feeds the main line.

The buildings on the land are newly built, and include an electric gate entrance, a house – which comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a double garage – and a shed for stage space, where maintenance and vehicles can be kept. There are also new ablution facilities (showers, basins and wash-closets) .
