- Wonderboom Nature Reserve
"Wonderboom" redirects here. For the band, see
The Wonderboom Nature Reserve is a 1 km² reserve centered on a wild willowleaf fig tree "Ficus salicifolia" that is more than a thousand years old, found towards the north of the
MagaliesbergMountains in the Northern portion of the Tshwane( Pretoria) Metropole, South Africa. It is situated at the foot of the Magaliesberg and is currently protected from human traffic around its trunk and roots. As it has grown, its outlying branches have rooted themselves round the parent tree. This has repeated until there are now three circles of daughter trees encircling the mother fig, with 13 distinct trunks, covering a 50m area.
"Wonderboom" is the
Afrikaansname that translates as "Wonder Tree," or more accurately "Miracle Tree."
Other features of the Wonderboom Nature preserve include a stone age site that has given up the largest single accumulation of
Neolithictools ever found in South Africa and an Iron Agesite, as well as a breeding pair of Black Eagles.
