The Cape Floral Kingdom is the smallest of the world's six defined floral Kingdoms. Yet it is the richest in diversity with the highest concentration of plant species.
This floral kingdom is home to the distinctive fynbos that includes an extensive variety of plants. Hard and tough leathery-leaved plants live side by side with delicate heathers. Proteas, disas and ericas are some of the better know plants but there are many more for the the enthusiast to discover in the wild.

Season by season, different plants come to the fore to display their special
features and this makes the area a year-round floral treasure-chest.
