The Quiver Tree Forest with a rainbow at sunset shortly after a summer thunderstorm. Keetmanshoop, Namibia

A summer thunderstorm creates a stunning rainbow backdrop at sunset over the Quiver tree (Kokerboom) forest near the town of Keetmanshoop in Namibia. The quiver tree or kokerboom (Aloe dichotoma) is a tall, branching species of succulent aloe, indigenous to Southern Africa. They occur specifically in the Northern Cape region of South Africa, and parts of Southern Namibia. Just outside the town of Keetmanshoop in Namibia is a forest of sheer and utter beauty with some of the most fantastic specimens of Quiver Trees to be seen anywhere

The Quiver Tree Forest (Kokerboom Woud in Afrikaans) is a forest and tourist attraction of southern Namibia. It is located about 14 km north east of Keetmanshoop, on the road to Koes, on the Gariganus farm. It comprises about 250 specimens of Aloe dichotoma, a species of aloe that is also locally known as quiver tree (Afrikaans: kokerboom) because bushmen traditionally used its branches to make quivers. The forest is spontaneous, the tallest quiver trees are two to three centuries old. The forest was declared a national monument of Namibia on June 1, 1995
