UMTIZA TREE HIKE

Included in this hike is an Umtiza tree forest (the second largest population in South Africa – more than 300 trees in a 1ha area). The Umtiza listeriana is a rare tree species in the legume family, found only in a small area of the Eastern Cape. During this hike the guide will also take you to a grassland section of the Reserve where the cycad, Stangeria eriopus, grows. The combination of the grassland, the Stangeria eriopus and flowering plants create a symbiosis for the extremely rare Veniliodes setinata (a Cycad moth of the genus Veniliodes). A Lepidopterist specializing in the moth family Geometridae, Hermann Staude, recently visited us to collect samples to take for DNA sequencing.
