Aloe viridiflora

Namibia

A. viridiflora has many similarities to that of A. hereroensis. The name 'viridiflora' means to 'have green flowers' although variations towards yellow have been sighted. The inflorescence is similar in shape to that of A. hereroensis, although A. viridiflora is more upright in it's stance. Stems are up to 1m in height. Other features include light green/grey leaves with flowers blooming from August to September. Seeds mature into beautiful pot plants with neutral soil from their natural habitat.

There are only a few colonies in the central regions of the Khomas Hochland farming areas with some isolated observations north and east of Windhoek. Other recordings have been taken in Brakwater and hills north of Rehoboth. Their disappearance has been attributed to farmers observing yearly damage to plants in flower by baboons and kudu.

Lake Oanob

A selection of rooms and bungalows surround this large lake. This is a good place to stay if you are looking for complete relaxation, perhaps at the end of the trip before driving to the Windhoek International Airport (which is about 1.5 hours drive away)
