The Highveld is an extensive high-lying grassland, covering much of Southern Africa. The Drakensberg Mountains form the boundary in the south and east, while the western and northern boundaries are formed by lower rainfall areas, rather than a physical boundary.

About half of the Highveld lies above meters. (Sappi Tree Spotting; ). The Klein Drakensberg basaltic chain, stretching km from north to south, comprises an imposing plateau, the Highveld, rising between 1,m and 1 m in altitude.

The massif, sculpted by erosion, boasts a variety of landscapes: passes, vertiginous waterfalls, pine and eucalyptus forests as far as the eye can see, and the spectacular Blyde. Although this book also includes the flowers of Lesotho, Swaziland, southern Mozambique and the eastern parts of the Free State, Gauteng and Mpumalanga, there are three important 'hot spots' of botanical diversity in the region- the Drakensberg, Maputaland and Pondoland centres- which are now internationally recognised.

In South Africa the plateau is at its highest in the east where its edge varies in altitude between 2, m and 3, m.

This edge of the plateau, as the land drops sharply to the coastal plain, forms a very high, steep escarpment known as the Drakensberg southern and western extents of the escarpment are not so high as Drakensberg, but also are known by a wide variety of local.

The deposits are sufficiently similar in many respects to the Masotcheni Formation, a late Quaternary colluvium which outcrops abundantly in the Drakensberg, to propose an assignation to this unit.

However, an aeolian component in the Masotcheni has not previously been described. Sappi tree spotting (Paperback) by Val Thomas, Rina Grant and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Highlands Highveld – Drakensberg – Eastern Cape Mountains.

Val Thomas Jun I am revising a book called Sappi Tree Spotting Highveld - with my co-author Rina Grant, and we are looking for photos in the Drakensberg, as well as the general area of the Highveld.

The Northern Berg, the heart of the country between the Highveld and the Indian Ocean, easily accessible to city-dwelling Gautengers starved for fresh air and outdoor adventure, beach-loving KZN-ers looking for some real elevation, and Free State farmers wanting to show off their toughness, is the perfect destination for staging what is sure to.

The amount of wear provides a rough index of age. Very likely the Drakensberg Bushmen and their art are much older than this however. Like most art this has a distinctive style, perhaps combining the attitude of the artists and what was considered fashionable.

Bushman art has great value as a picture book of the past. THE HIGHVELD & COSMOS. The Highveld region covers a wide area of high altitude grassland. The area is the principal power generating centre of a large part of the country.

It is also a major agricultural and maize growing area, producing exceptionally high yields consistently. R.O. Pearse () Mountain Splendour – the Wild Flowers of the Drakensberg.
