INDIGENOUS FORESTS

In southern Africa the three principal forests types are temperate, subtropical and montane.

The best known temperate forest lies in the garden route area of South Africa.

Coastal forests with their wondeful trees; milkwoods, white-stinkwoods and erythrinas and wild figs are slightly different in character from the inland forests.

Forest birdlife is abundant and proves a real challenge. Some forests provide a habitat for shy and ellusive mammals.
