In terms of Acocks' classification (1953) the vegetation of the park consists of Kalahari Thornveld Proper (Veld Type 16). According to the new vegetation map by Mucina et al. (2005) two vegetation units occur in the park namely Kimberley Thornveld (Svk4) and Vaalbos Rocky Shrubland (Svk5) of which both are part of the Savanna Biome.

Bordering towards the north is a very important unit called the Northern Upper Karoo (Nku 3) which forms part of the Nama Karoo Biome.

One of conservation objectives of the park is to conserve the interface of two biomes, (Savanna Biome and the Nama-Karoo Biome).

What park is this?

So, as I understand it, the question must give clues to a specific park, and the answer will be one of the SANParks.

Lets keep it to the original idea so that this quiz do not overlap with others.

I will edit the name of the quiz a bit to remind us of the theme of the quiz. :wink:
Imberbe = Combretum imberbe = Leadwood = Hardekool = The spirit of the Wildernis!

As I will be away from tomorrow I don't want to hold up the quizz.
I have to assume that Pjw and Skillie are correct, the spelling I have is Metomeni Creek near H2-2 - I can find no reference to Ntomeni in any of my books.
Apologies Pjw for saying you were incorrect. Over to you again.

This park is extremely rugged and is only accessible to vehicles with high clearance The early morning fog is called ‘Ihuries’ or ‘Malmokkies by the local people A large number of plant species occur here that occur nowhere else
What park am I referring to?

Used to be a military training area.
