Initially we saw many of the usual suite of grassland flowers. However we were very lucky to find a small population of the vulnerable species Turraea pulchella and hopefully Dineo will be able to collect seed for the seed bank in due course.

These cliff edges provide a good example of the rich biodiversity of the area and we were soon finding interesting examples. One of the more rewarding of these was Cadaba natalensis with its rather elongate flowers. Obetia tenax invites one to get closer to examine its small flowers but you do so at your peril as this tree-nettle packs a powerful punch.
