1. Disa Kloof WalkAs a result of flooding in 2013 this walk has been closed due to damaged bridges and is under repair.:(

2.Fynbos Trail 1,850km and takes approximately 60 minutes.

There are over 7000 plant species in fynbos. This vegetation grows only in the Cape provinces of South Africa and it is adapted to harsh growing conditions;Ā nutrient- poor soil, needs fire and survives strong winds and drought.

I am mesmerised by the simple beauty of the subtle colours,textures and intricate designs.
