Lindani’s Diverse Landscape
The Waterberg has over 2000 plant species with a variety of flowering trees in particular. Their elegant shapes and unique bulbs make a major contribution to the beauty of Lindani. The best way to enjoy them is to walk the trails. A tree list is provided plus guide books are available in each lodge to assist with identification. While the Waterberg does not seek to compete with the Western Cape, there is nevertheless a considerable variety of flowering plants. The best time for veld flowers is late November and December, depending on the early summer rainfall.
The Waterberg region is an ancient landscape, the red colour of the rocks in the region are testament to the age of the land. The iron oxide or red colour of the rocks provides us with the earliest evidence on earth of the presence of free oxygen in the atmosphere. The area is graced with some of South Africa’s most pristine rivers, particularly the Palala, whose wilderness quality is unparalleled.
All of the above contributes to Lindani’s beauty and altogether provide a haven with multiple habitats, dramatic changes in topography and beautiful escarpments. Astronomers familiar with the South African scene also agree that the Waterberg is one of the perfect sites in the country to view the wonders of the universe.
