The Beginning

More specifically, it's the story of the Bhorat family. With no history of agriculture, but a passion for conservation and wildlife, the family acquired the property in 2008 on the historic wagon-trading route. The overgrazed land - partly farmed and partly indigenous veld - carried a few dilapidated buildings, no roads to speak of and badly sited over- silted dams; no wild animals to speak of either. But under expert guidance, the Bhorat family began their journey in rehabilitating the historic land.
