Local botanical expert Sylvie Kremer-Köhne will lead you on a 1.5 hour walk in the very special, critically endangered Haenertsburg grasslands. Less than 5% of this vegetation type remains, the rest having been converted to commercial forestry and agriculture. There are over 630 different plant species in this area, of which 42 are protected; it has been estimated that there are on average more than 80 different plant species per hectare. Some of these will be flowering at this time! Contact Sylvie on 083 458 4733.
Friends of the Haenertsburg Grasslands (FroHG) organized a successful spring clean-up of the grasslands, streams and roads around the village of Haenertsburg on Saturday, 20 August 2016. Some twenty volunteers (learners from a local school and other members from the Haenertsburg and Tzaneen community) collected a large amount of litter. It was an ideal time for a clean-up while the critically endangered grasslands lie dormant with large parts having been burnt.
