The Carnarvon Estate
The Andriesberg is a massive dolerite dome rising out of the surrounding plains in the Sterkstroom district of the Eastern Cape. The pockets of soil and rock cracks on the mountain are a unique habitat for a variety of especially succulent flora with some special endemics such as Huernia piersii. It is
situated on an historic farm, Carnarvon Estates, run as a conservancy, game reserve and guest farm by the Halse Family.
