The Quiver Tree Forest

The Quiver Tree Forest

Let yourself be enchanted by the Magical Quiver Tree Forest, and capture the most beautiful photos of these trees, with the “Golden Hours” of the early morning sunrise and late evening sunsets.

The Quiver Tree (German: Kocherbaum, afrikaans: kokerboom) is not a tree, but an aloe species, which can be about five feet tall. This species of plants owes its name to the San, who used to carve quivers from the branches. These plants grow in solitude, so the masses of them in one place is an extraordinary attraction. Some of these trees are already over 200 years old.

The quiver tree forest consists of hundreds of quiver trees and has been declared a World Heritage Site.
