The following is a detailed explanation of the valuation of the fixed assets.
The farm 24Nk is a freehold farm, area 4 433 Ha.
It has been chemically treated with Molopo herbicide. This was done selectively by hand so that the “good” trees were maintained. This was carried out in 2012, the results are evident.
The farm has a traditional farmhouse and 1 strong active borehole.
It is boundary fenced with a recently constructed game fence.
Average freehold farm values in Ghanzi are approx. P 3 000 / Ha for similar farms, we’ve added P 350 / Ha for the de-bushing, thus P 3 350 / Ha giving a value for this farm of
P 14 850 550
The farm 25NK is a freehold farm, area 4 280 Ha.
