The Fynbos Biome is part of the Cape Floral Region and has two key vegetation groups, namely the Fynbos and Renosterveld.

The region is extremely rich in plant species and up to 7 000 species are included in this group. 80% of these species are endemic to the Cape Floral Region.

The vegetation occurs on well-leached, infertile soils which make life very difficult for gardeners! You know you are in the Fynbos when restoides or cape reeds, ericas or heaths, and members of the extended protea family are present.

Many species are threatened or highly threatened and conservation of this valuable asset is of high priority.

We are privileged that highly acclaimed local conservation efforts like the Fynbos Retreat, Nuwejaars Wetland Special Management Area, Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and Walker Bay Nature Reserve are internationally acclaimed models of cooperation to conserve our unique Fynbos Biome.

To celebrate it’s uniqueness and biodiversity, the Funky Fynbos Festival is held annually over a weekend in September in Gansbaai. Come and participate in mountain bike rides, the 4X4 challenge, trail runs, fynbos displays and safaris, farmers’ markets and many other family fun activities on farms near Franskraal. This is the event of the year in Gansbaai! Do not miss it and follow the Festival on Facebook.

Visit Groeneweide Nursery & Restaurant where you can experience the fynbos first-hand and even buy some plants to take home with you. The Groeneweide Garden Centre/Nursery has a wide range of indigenous and coastal plants and the Restaurant serves delicious breakfast and light meals.
