Ubuntu Tree - Nokuphila

'Unabantu Nokuphila'- in Xhosa "Nokuphila" means "the mother of health" and "Unabantu" is "where the people come together" - The 'Ubuntu Tree' is therefore the "Place of the Healing Mother where the people gather for health & wellness "
 
Over 400 years ago, a special wild fig (ficus carica) tree was planted in what is now Kloof Street. It marked along with its neighbour tree sisters the borderline of the Camissa-fed Weltevreden dam of Cape Town, where residents and visitors from afar would gather to collect their fresh water, and socialise under the shade of what came to be known as "Unabantu Nokuphila" the tAll-loving One where healing flows." Today it continues to receive and refresh friends and visitors, and support and inspires its Ubuntu Wellness Centre custodians at the Cape Town Medi-Spa.
