The Quiver Tree Forest Outside Niewoudtville!

About 20 km outside Niewoudtville on the Loeriesfontein road is the most incredible place, a Quiver Tree Forest, or Kokerboom if you prefer. Eerie, almost sacred – why do they naturally occur specifically here? There are thousands of them from enormous olds to baby shoots scattered on the side of the hill. Walking among them I loved the textures, colours and significance. Note to self – return when they are in bloom!
