About Die Wonderboom
Wonderboom is a remarkable sight where two trees, namely the Ghwarrie tree (Eudea undulate) and a Shepherd’s Tree (Boscia oleolides, also called a Karoo witgat) grow side by side.
What makes this “wonder tree” unique is the fact that the Shepherd’s Tree has three stems coming up out if the ground. Two of the stems have joined together, forming and “eye of a needle” and a third stem has grown through the eye forming the “thread” creating a “needle and thread” effect.
The Ghwarrie tree merely keeps the Shepherd’s Tree company. Situated 12km on the N9 towards Aberdeen.
