Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm

Bed & Breakfast Accommodation In Addo

Background

"Miskruier" the name of our working Citrus farm is not only just a name the owner, Mr. HHJ Potgieter, decided upon years ago when he bought the property in 1996. He already had the idea so save this special flightless dung beetle. After developing the farm into a highly productive commercial citrus farm, exporting 14 varieties to approximately 60 countries world wide. Mr. Potgieter then decided to build five chalets with a lapa overlooking the Zuurberg Mountains and with this development he wanted to give something back to nature and so built a 50 x 50 m enclosure for the protection of these flightless dung beetles. Incidentally we also started off with 11 dung beetles on the 19th July 2006. 150 Cubic meters of soft sand was off loaded into the enclosure to provide the dung beetles with a suitable environment for their activities. The Conservation Project's purpose was to breed and re-introduce the dung beetles back into nature. We also wanted to create an awareness of Conservation outside a National Park. BUT, unfortunately we had difficulties in succeeding with breeding this little special beetle. We had to release all off them we had due to that we could not source enough fresh dung on a regular basis. We SUCCEEDED in creating awareness for the dung beetles as we wanted. We still do talks and have a lovely awareness page on our website.

The owner have developed 100 ha of our 240ha Succulent Valley Bush Veld (one of the 7 biomes), into citrus land and have sold all the game. In the 140ha Succulent Valley Bush Veld, guest can still enjoy hikes as some of the natural wild life that naturally still accure in the area.

Introduction

Addo Dung Beetle Guest Farm is situated 4 km from the Main Gate of the Addo Elephant National Park on a working Citrus Farm. The Citrus part of the Farm is approximately 250ha with an estimated 151 000 individual trees.

All our bedside tables and headboards are made up from a combination of local wood species found in the area. (Yellow woods, Oaks, Sneeze woods, Black Wood) The Sneeze wood chandeliers found through the Chalets and Lapa were used as fence posts on the farm until a few years ago.
