If you are travelling along the R36 near Lydenburg, you may spot some large game amongst the grass at the side of the road.
These aren’t game animals that have wondered here but are life size sculptures that belong to Dick Heysteck’s Game Farm. Unlike many game farms, here you will have no problems spotting the Big 5. All the animal sculptures are made from concrete and are here to stay.
Dick Heysteck started his first sculpture in the early 1980’s and within a few years he had a herd of animals and some human statues too. Each piece took around 2 months to complete and much love and effort was put into his artworks.
This is a game farm with a difference and certainly one you should visit.
