Cultivating Botanicals & Creating Community-Based Supply Chains
Intelezi African Herbs is concerned about the unsustainable harvesting of some rare and precious plants such as Mondia whitei. For this reason we have initiated cultivation projects aimed at trialing and up-scaling effective horticulture practices.
Africa's East Coast
This is a sub-tropical region of extremely high biodiversity comprising the provinces of KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga in South Africa, as well as Swaziland and Mozambique. Herbalists from the Bantu and Tonga people are famous for their knowledge of plant use and healing techniques.
Africa’s West Coast
This Mediterranean and arid climatic zone is world-renowned for its highly biodiverse fynbos biome comprising more than 9000 separate species. As one proceeds up the West Coast to Namibia the climate becomes arid and home to precious desert species.
Indian Ayurvedic traditions, European Herbalism and some species from Asia and the America’s are highly effective and can be combined with our powerful African herbs for optimal effects.
