Harold Porter National Botanical Garden

Cape Winelands, Western Cape
Nature 

This beautiful, secluded Garden is nestled between mountain and sea, where steams of amber-coloured water flow, in the heart of the Cape Fynbos region within the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. It consists of 10 hectares of cultivated fynbos garden and 190.5 hectares of pristine natural fynbos.

Visitors to The Garden encounter a range of cinematic scenery including mountain slopes and deep gorges with relict forests, flats and marshes, as well as dunes adjacent to the beach with their specialised salt-adapted plants. The Garden is renowned for its waterfalls and amber pools and boasts Disa uniflora in its natural habitat (flowering from mid-December to end of January). There are approximately 88 species of birds, including the Orange-Breasted Sunbird and the rare Protea Canary. Wildlife includes mongooses, porcupines and genets.
