Our logo is adapted from a painting by Phillip Dlamini, 1998, of a purple crested turaco. In traditional Swazi dress, the red feathers feature in the royal headdress, so this bird illustration is not only a symbol for wildlife conservation, but also of cultural heritage.
The only information currently available with regard to soil classification is the 1:250 000 soils map for Eswatini, with its associated information (Murdoch, 1970). Most of the soils in the reserve are classified as "rock outcrops and stony ground: raw mineral soil", and are thin, leached and not suited to agriculture. The area is very susceptible to soil erosion, and old roads and tracks have resulted in the formation of large gullies in some areas.
