The Cape Floral Kingdom is entirely unique and very special. Spanning across 90 000sq km, it is the smallest and richest floral area on the planet – declared by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Over 9600 species of unique plants occur here that are found nowhere else in the world. Cape Town is not short of truly amazing fauna either; species such as the Cape Geometric Tortoise, Table Mountain Ghost Frog and the Cape Clawless Otter are but a few of the remarkable creatures you’ll find in and around Cape Town. For those seeking an encounter with the Big 5, there are several renowned places to visit, such as Inverdoorn, Aquila Private Game Reserve and Fairy Glen.
