The Pretoria National Botanical Garden is one of South Africa’s nine National Botanical Gardens. The garden is wedged between Pretoria Road and Cussonia Avenue in Brummeria, in eastern Pretoria, Gauteng, and flanks a central rocky ridge that runs from east to west. The 76 hectares (0.76 km2) garden was established in 1946, and of late hosts the headquarters of the South African National Biodiversity Institute.
The Bridal Veil Falls is just outside Sabie, Mpumalanga in South Africa. It is 146m high.
It is situated just outside Sabie and is accessible by car, with parking and picnic area on SAFCOL’s grounds. From there an easy footpath runs through bush scenery for about 1 km (15 minutes’ walk) directly to the waterfall.
The common name glasswort came into use in the 16th century to describe plants growing in England whose ashes could be used for making soda-based (as opposed to potash-based) glass. The glassworts are succulent, annual halophytes, or plants that thrive in saline environments, such as seacoasts and salt marshes.
