Table Mountain National Park
To give you an idea of how unique and rich the plant life in this area is, there are more plant species within the park’s 220 square kilometres than could be found in the whole of the British Isles.
The TMNP is, in turn, part of the greater Cape Floral Kingdom – a 90,000 square kilometre stretch of land and sea that runs from South Africa’s Cape Peninsula to the Eastern Cape.
The Cape Floral Kingdom, the richest and smallest of the world’s six floral kingdoms, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Over 70 per cent of the 9,600 plant species found in the Cape Floral Kingdom are unique to the region and cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.
