The Western Cape region
Due its ecological significance, this unique biodiversity hotspot became the FIRST Biosphere Reserve in southern Africa. The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve boasts 1 300 different plant species per 10 000 square kilometres...the highest diversity in the World! The next highest, Amazon rain forest, has only 420 species within the same area!
The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve is the Heart of the Cape Floral Kingdom; by far the smallest but richest of the World's six Floral Kingdoms! The Cape Floral Kingdom has 9 087 different plant species of which 6 218 are endemic (found no where else in the world). To put this in perspective, the British Isles has just 20 endemics!
The KBR is a photographer's dream come true! Magnificent seascapes and sunsets, towering mountains and fast changing weather…and often 50 different flowers within a 500-metre stroll!
Just an hour out of Cape Town at the southern tip of Africa, lies an area of such natural beauty and floral diversity as to be recognized as perhaps world's greatest biodiversity hot-spot, with Pringle bay one of the 4 towns in the biosphere
Size for size, this 100 000 hectare UNESCO registered Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve is home to the most complex biodiversity on our planet! Here we have some 1880 different plant species… the next richest is the South American rainforest with just 420 species per 10000 square kilometres!
Biosphere Reserves are 'new concept' reserves… nowhere do you see fences to keep 'people' out and 'nature' in… it is the commitment of local communities, farmers, conservation agencies and local government that protects the magnificent landscapes and unique biodiversity!
The Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve begins in the Atlantic Ocean, 7.5 km off a rugged, rocky shore interspersed by glorious, golden sandy beaches. A zig-zag ribbon of narrow coastal plain is squeezed between the ocean and huge sandstone mountains. Contorted by their tumultuous birth some 300 million years ago, these awesome folded mountains and highland valleys are home to over 1880 different species of plants. 77 species within theKogelberg Biosphere Reserve occur nowhere else on Earth (to put this in perspective, the whole of the UK has just 22 endemics)
Ever changing vistas - from magnificent white beaches and wild rocky shores, sunsets over False Bay, rugged mountains rising from narrow coastal plains, to rose-edged vineyards and orchards in pockets of fertile soils in the highlands . Because of its spectacular seascapes and landscapes, and the richness of its flora and fauna, the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve attracts people with a love of nature. Many are visitors and holidaymakers…others are residents and property owners.
