Natural beauty abounds on the property, 95% of which is comprised of undisturbed fynbos of exceptionally high biodiversity conservation value in the Cape Floristic Plant Kingdom. The farm is an important water catchment area and an area of transition from lowland to mountain fynbos. The farm also forms part of an important buffer zone for the neighbouring Limietberg Nature Reserve managed by Cape Nature.
