The Waainek Wild Flower Reserve
And Glen Avon Falls in Images

The Waainek Wild Flower Reserve on the Bosberg, Somerset East
encompasses the forest verge and the strip of grassland above the forest.
The reserve was established primarily to conserve Haemanthus carneus,
a bulb endemic to the Bosberg. Brunsvigia grandiflora, flowering in the
reserve in April was the plant that initially drew my attention to the botanical richness of the area.
