The property lies between 200 and 400 metres above sea level and is dominated by ridges and hills. The Kanga River and a number of dry watercourses traverse the property (± 25 kilometres).
The vegetation of the Reserve consists of elements of both the SUCCULENT KAROO BIOME and THICKET VEGETATION BIOME, as the two biomes converge in the area.
