For centuries people have been on a journey of mastering fire, and we as South Africans were the very first humans to do so nearly a million years ago.
The mastery of fire is considered to be one of the most pivotal moments in the history of humankind, providing safety, warmth and a communal place for social interactions within the tribe.
Wherever humans have gone in the world they have carried with them the two most significant achievements of humanity, language, and fire!
From “Braaivleis” to “Shisa Nyama,” as South Africans, making fire is in our blood and we are proud to be supporting this age-old tradition with you here in the UK.
Our African hardwood is ethically sourced in line with the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry in Namibia.
Sekelbos (Dichrostachys cinerea) or “Sicklebush” is an alien invasive species and is therefore removed from Namibia as part of their bush encroachment control scheme (or de-bushing).
The Namibian authorities regularly visit the farms to carry out inspections and record the number of dead and living trees.
The alien invasive wood that is exported from Namibia creates thousands of jobs for local farmers, most of which live in poverty and are sole bread winners for their families.
