A few months ago, we made a trip to Dwesa Cwebe Nature Reserve in the Eastern Cape. It is quite a drive and the roads are pretty bad – you need a vehicle with high suspension. But once you get there, the dense coastal forests, natural lagoons and beach are pretty much all yours. Well, that was our experience at any rate but I suppose we were out of season. We went on a great hike along the coast with one of the very knowledgeable local guides. We came across a baby coral tree, something I hadn’t seen before. Is this Erythrina caffra but just a baby version? Why is it dwarfed like this?
