Welcome to the Valley Bushveld. This is the land of the 1820 Settlers - a hostile, dry area, a place of harsh contrasts. Yet there is an appeal about the valley bushveld which once experienced one never forget and invites you to return again. This is a land of bush stunted from lack of water. Discover the bush's hidden secrets, how the plants and animals conserve water and energy, their protective mechanisms, how they survive this harsh environment. Find water and food where no water and food appear to exist. Walk through this really amazing piece of country and let your Ben introduce you to the fascination, the harshness, the beauty of the bush veld and over refreshments discuss what you have discovered and learned and seen.
