The Agulhas nature reserve and the beautiful coast have plenty to offer tourists and every year it attracts many nature lovers and peace seekers. You will find around 2000 different species of Fynbos in this nature reserve. For example, it includes representatives of the unique limestone-fynbos vegetation. Although most varieties flower between May and September, there are also flowers that can be admired every season. Every now and then a Cape Grysbok can be spotted among all that overwhelming green.
