‘Fynbos’ is the generic name for the unique vegetation of the Cape Floral Kingdom.
It’s made up of a combination of four main plant groups:
proteas, ericas, restios and geophytes.
The Cape Peninsula is home to more species than found in the entire northern hemisphere, with a staggering 2,285 flowering plants, while Table Mountain alone has just fewer species than all those found in Britain, with 70% of these found nowhere else in the world.
