This very arid unit is restricted to shallow clayey soils that are derived from the shale and mudstones of the Klipbokkop formation. Here the tree and tall shrub component is very sparse with only a few gnarled Carissa haematocarpa and Euclea undulata trees present. The sparse vegetation is dominated by shrubs and succulents with Berkheya cuneata, Berkheya spinosa, Chrysocoma ciliata, Eriocephalus ericoides, Hereroa gracilis, Osteospermum scariosum, Pentzia incana, Pteronia pallens, Salsola tuberculata, Tetragonia fruticosa and Zygophyllum retrofractum the most abundant species. Other characteristic shrubs and succulents are Crassula arborescens, Crassula subaphylla, Cylindrophyllum tugwelliae, Dicoma spinosa, Plumbago triste, Pteronia flexicaulis, Rosenia humilis and Scleletium tortuosum. The only known rare plants present are Conophytum joubertii and the localized endemic Gibbaeum nebrownii that are restricted to outcrops of bare shale in this unit.
