Malolotja Nature Reserve - Soils

The only information currently available with regard to soil classification is the 1:250 000 soils map for Swaziland, 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.
