The conservancy covers the entire districts of De Aar, Philipstown and Hanover in the southeastern portion of the Northern Cape Province. Although the land in the IBA is primarily used for grazing and agriculture, it includes the suburban towns of De Aar, Philipstown, Petrusville and Hanover. This area holds vitally important populations of Secretarybird Sagittarius serpentarius, Ludwig's Bustard Neotis ludwigii, Kori Bustard Ardeotis kori and large numbers of Karoo Korhaan Eupodotis vigorsii.
