Bushmans Kloof supports Mandela Day

The magic of Mandela Day has reached the far corners of South Africa, even on the outskirts of the town of Clanwilliam, where Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat staff helped children of the local Elizabethfontein Primary School to plant endangered Cedar trees.

The endemic Clanwilliam cedar tree occurs only in the Cederberg mountains, some 250km north of Cape Town. It represents one of 1 000 surviving conifer species in the world and is categorised as endangered on the Red Data List, as it is facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
