From the pink crown petals of the King Protea or fine orange pins of the pincushion to wildflowers that burst into a thousand shades of floral colour – fynbos sure does put on a (uniquely South African) show during flower season. Not only is this a feast for the eyes, it is a vitally important part in the life cycle of this incredibly biodiverse plant species; one which we are committed to conserving and sharing with the rest of the world.
What’s All The Fuss About Fynbos?
As an integral part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, fynbos makes up one of the richest floristic regions in the world! In fact, per square kilometre, fynbos contains three times more species variety than the Amazon rainforest. This unique and hardy plant species boasts incredible biodiversity, provides habitats for an enormous variety of birds and animals, and is endemic to South Africa – meaning it doesn’t grow anywhere else on the planet! You can see how conservation of this floral wonderland is so vital. That’s why, when you travel with Hotspots2c, part of your tour fee goes towards Greenpop's Fynbos for the Future Urban Greening programme in an effort to preserve this fascinating species for future generations.
What are you waiting for; we know you'll want to see the fabulous fynbos for yourself...
