Landscape, Habitat and Flora Galleries

Plants seen on a typical tour in early February
Sentinal Peak and Sterkfontein Dam, Kwazulu-Natal National Park
14th-15th February 2008.

Sentinal Peak     The Amphitheatre (1)     The Amphitheatre (2)     

View from top of Peak     Eucomis - as far as the eye can see

Sterkfontein Dam     

A truly magnificent place and in our mind no trip to South Africa is complete without seeing the wonderful sights that Sentinal Peak has to offer. The whole place is a must see for both gardeners and photographers alike and at this time of the year the wealth of wildflowers is astounding. A  large proportion of the plants and bulbs found in this high altitude location are grown as hardy garden plants in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.
