The house is at the highest point on the land and is reached by a
dirt track. Water is provided by a borehole on the property with a
humble, but generally adequate, supply for domestic use. The
neighbors have a prolific borehole and there is a delivery pipe up to
the house. They have been supplying water at commercial rates (this
is subject to the new tenant negotiating the same or a similar deal
with the neighbors) There is also a 40 000 liter concrete open
reservoir on an elevated rise adjacent to the pool area. All in all a
unique property, best suited to those who love to have the room to
breathe. Here you can appreciate the huge wide spaces, that surely
is one of the true essences of living in Botswana. Yet have easy
