The Magnificent Marula

Although quite palatial in its own right, this little article is not about the Bushveld Terrace’s famous honeymoon suite, but rather the tree (and its fruit) that inspired the name of our suite.

Sclerocarya birrea, commonly known as the marula, (Ancient Greek σκληρός, sklērós, "hard", and κάρυον, káryon, "nut", in reference to the stone inside the fleshy fruit) is a medium-sized dioecious (a big word that means one gets distinctly male and female individuals) tree, indigenous to the low lying woodlands of Southern Africa, and quite prolific in Phalaborwa and surrounds.

Free Photography Course - feedback

Oh, did we have fun and learn a lot! (Didn't think it was possible in such a short time.) Hanna Jacobs is an exceptional teacher and the Bushveld Terrace guests and Phalaborwa residents attending the free basic photography course had a great time. Light, focus, composition and depth of field: Easy peasy with a master photographer by your side.
 
Ansel Adams famously said: "You don't take a photograph. You make it."
 
With Hanna it' was easy to understand and, with a little bit of effort, quite simple to allow the artist within yourself to come to the fore. No-one could wait to unleash their newfound creative knowledge on an unsuspecting visual world. See you again next year!
