Fynbos Sunset Walk at Belmond Mount Nelson, South Africa
The Cape Floral Kingdom is one of only six floral kingdoms in the world and is geographically by far the smallest, yet the richest of these plant kingdoms. Fynbos (fine bush), the indigenous mountain vegetation, forms a major part of this Cape floral kingdom.
Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel offers guests a unique opportunity to discover the Fynbos of the Cape floral kingdom on Table Mountain, one of the world’s Seven Wonders of Nature. Enjoy a ramble along the lower slopes of Table Mountain with a dramatic outlook over Camps Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, with an expert mountain and Fynbos guide who will share interesting stories about the “Big Five of Fynbos"– the plant families of Proteas, Ericas, Restios, Bulbs (Irises and Lilies) and Daisies – and uncover many aspects of the natural and cultural history of the Cape and Table Mountain.
The Fynbos Sunset Walks will take place in the late afternoon so guests can enjoy sundowners from an elevated position on the mountainside, watching the sun sink below the horizon of the Atlantic Ocean. The tour will last two and a half hours, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy a day out before embarking on this experience.
