Kasouga Farm has 1500 ha’s of Coastal Grasslands & thickets with 5kms of beach Front (of which 800 ha’s is Oribi habitat) – managing 140 oribi per year = 5.71 ha’s per oribi. Holistic farming principals have been applied involving sustainable utilization with cattle and game. We form part of a very successful Conservancy - Kowie to Kariega, where predator management and control of poaching is the key to success.
