In Dutch fynbos stands for "fine-leaved plants" and in Afrikaans – for "fine bush" and is guarded by national preserves for being one of the smallest floral kingdom in the world. While 60% of fynbos start blooming in spring, a lot of them keep painting the ground red until the early summer. Visit the Table Mountain and you will never forget the flora you see there! The floral safari will give you a truly remarkable experience.
