Fynbos Walk 2 - Fernkloof

The Western Cape appears well endowed with nature reserves one of which is right on our doorstep: Following on from the success of our previous guided walk (Fynbos Walk 1 - Klem and the Three Sisters) we enquired of the local Tourist Information for a Hermanus-based guide to do the same here. Which is how we came to spend two hours will Billy learning a lot about local flora and fauna.

We subsequently went back and walked most of the other paths ourselves and saw a fine variey of fynbos in bloom.

Tortoise have right-of-way--as they should. Poor little darlings can only move so fast! Love the flora! Beautiful.
