The estate was proclaimed a private nature reserve in 1995. It is the largest private nature reserve along the entire South African coastline. It extends over 2455 hectares (6066 acres) and stretches 5 km along the Indian Ocean. The reserve is fully fenced along its 15 km perimeter and only accessible via two gated entrances.

Well preserved ancient fish traps and shell middens are situated along the reserve`s coastline and pay testament to our great heritage. The fish traps date back to the Later Stone Age people (Khoi khoi) who roamed the coastline about 2000 years ago.
A walk up Buffelskop (212 m - the highest point on the reserve) offers a magnificent view of the entire coastline, the light house and a vast undulating inland landscape.
