Vegetation

Vegetation in Namibia is suffering from a drought for several years now, so the vegetation has a hard time growing. Besides, our farm is located on an old cattle farm, and some areas are quite badly depleted. We are looking for volunteers who are interested in taking a closer look at our habitat/vegetation (depending on the time of the year).  

Vegetation mapping, assessment of vegetation types on our farm. What problems are there concerning vegetation?

  • Invasive plants, what types do we have on the farm, and in which parts of the farm are they growing? How can we eradicate these?
  • The farm is divided in several camps, what is the carrying capacity for the several camps?
  • What are the best way to manage the bush encroachment on our farm?
  • How to deal with soil erosion? How does this affect our farm?
