- gardening for biodiversity
in Cape Town, South Africa
The Ungardener is a game-watcher - warthogs, elephants and vervet monkeys at Addo. I prefer to walk, look at birds, and flowers. Tourists are allowed on hiking trails in national parks, but only where there are no lions about.
Addo has 5 of South Africa’s 7 biomes. Spekboom forms the Sub-tropical thicket. In the Zuurberg we have an overlap from the Nama Karoo. Expecting fynbos, but we find huge aloes.
