TINTSWALO ATLANTIC SPROUTING BACK TO LIFE
With a breath-taking location on the water’s edge below the scenically beautiful Chapman’s Peak Drive, TA lost its public area and half the rooms in a wild fire that raged on the Peninsula in early March this year. Much of the natural vegetation was burnt and now, with the onset of the winter rains, it is encouraging to see how quickly the flora is rebounding.
To facilitate this recovery, Tintswalo Atlantic decided to plant various young endemic trees and invited some of their key trade partners to assist in this. The Trans Africa Safaris team visited Tintswalo Atlantic on Tuesday evening and planted a number of trees on the slopes above the lodge. Milkwoods and Wild Olives were among the trees planted and to commemorate the occasion a plaque was affixed to the one Milkwood.
The lodge is currently being re-built and the teams are working furiously to meet the opening date towards the end of October. The TAS family were happy to join Tintswalo in getting our hands dirty and assist in the restoration of the mountain slopes.
Tintswalo has planted over 2000 trees thus far and being part of this process was rather symbolic and very inspiring.
