King Proteas on Table Mountain
The King Protea which is the national flower of South Africa is quite incredible to see. Not only the colour and size. Just the sheer beauty and number of them is wonderful. On Table Mountain they generally flower in late February and March although you can often find isolated flowers in full bloom at any time
There are numerous proteas flowering on Table Mountain during the summer months, however one of the best places to see them is in Nursery Ravine. This is a steep gorge which climbs Table Mountain above Kirstenbosch Gardens on the Southern side of Table Mountain.
