Description

The Fernkloof Nature Reserve celebrated its 60th anniversary during the Hermanus Flower Festival in September 2017. The Fernkloof Nature Reserve forms part of the Cape Floristic Region near the southern tip of South Africa. Although it is the smallest of the six recognised floral kingdoms of the world, it boasts the highest concentration of indigenous plants per square meter and extraordinarily high fynbos diversity.
The reserve is 1,800 hectares in area, ranging from sea level to 842 metres and harbours more than 1 250 species of indigenous fynbos species.
Family fun activities are being planned over the four days to entertain all ages. Enjoy the gorgeous floral displays, environmental exhibits and labelled specimens of up to 400 fynbos species indigenous to the area. Bunches of fresh fynbos will be for sale, and the nursery will offer a wide variety of stunning indigenous plants. Linger longer and enjoy something to eat and drink at the Fynbos Café in the gardens.
