Trees of the Palmiet
 
   

The Palmiet Nature Reserve covers various terrains from grassland to forest. The bulk however is riverine. Many of the established trees along the river course have been washed away by flooding over recent years.The Palmiet plant has dissappeared from the reserve. Alien trees and plants are also taking their toll. Some trees are also under threat from muti (herbal) collectors. However there are still areas where visitors can follow trails through indigenous forest and escape from the nearby city life. Click on the blue text for more information.
