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.
