Enjoy a hike in the Fynbos Plant Kingdom
found on Table Mountain
When going for a walk on Table Mountain don’t forget to take the time to look at the flora around you. There are only 6 floral kingdoms in the world, and the fynbos plant kingdom which is found in the South Western corner of Africa is both the smallest and the most diverse. (ie. it has the most number of species per km sq) Even more amazing is that of the various plant life found here, roughly 70% are endemic. (ie. Not found anywhere else in the world)
It’s also important to know that unlike many areas, whatever the season there is always something wonderful to see in the area. You don’t have to come in the spring in order to see some wonderful and vibrant colours. Whatever time of year you come there will be a wonderful diplay of floral richness on Table Mountain and the surrounding area.
