“The original 235ha of Game Park is in the process of being developed into an exclusive lifestyle estate. Of the 127ha being developed, 22ha is landscaped open space and 12ha natural wetland, still accessible by the game”.

In April 2017, Trees SA delivered and installed a grand, water-wise 2000-litre Aloidendron barberae (Aloe tree). Standing proud at 6m height with a 2.5m crown width and a 36cm stem diameter, we think it is the perfect realisation of the envisioned landscape designed by GIBB Landscape Architects. See photo in gallery.
Then almost a year later in March 2018, we transported and installed 3 x Large Wild Plums (Harpephyllum caffrum) on the estate. Reaching 10m in height already, the trio makes quite a statement when driving around the large roundabout.
There are still plans to install a 2000-litre Erythrina lysistemon (Common Coral tree). The famous flowers will showcase beautiful red colours throughout the grey winter months of the Cape Town landscape.
Along with the planned Common Coral tree, there is also a plan to rescue and relocate a 4500-litre Brachychiton acerifolius (Australian Flame tree) later in the year.
Our favourite quote from the article sums this project up perfectly:
“I sit in my garden, gazing upon a beauty that cannot gaze upon itself. And I find sufficient purpose for my day” – Robert Brault.
