The farm borders onto a nature reserve and we are surrounded by pristine veldt. We are fortunate in having an abundance of wildlife on the farm.
Ricky’s Drift is home to porcupines, jackals, hares, rabbits, buck, mongeese, and all sorts of other small mammals and rodents, rooikat, civet, baboons, abundant insect and bird life and reptiles of all sorts. A small herd of free kudu pass through the valley from time to time and we have heard leopard and seen spoor. For this reason we hope to limit the number of dogs and cats on the farm and these will need to be managed with care.
