Fernkloof Hike – we offer guided hikes in the Fernkloof Nature Reserve – There are some 60 kilometers of hiking trails of varying degrees of difficulty professionally guided to suit your level of fitness and agility.

Fernkloof Hermanus Hike introduction

Fernkloof Hike – The Nature reserve covers 18 square kilometers and boasts around 2000 plant species. With new species being discovered all the time by the very active botanical society that administers and runs the reserve together with the local Fernkloof Hermanus municipality.  The Fernkloof Hermanus Nature Reserve has a wide variety of habitats, from afromontane forests to rocky cliffs. There are many  kilometers of trails including the cliff path along the coastal strip which borders the town on a Fernkloof Hermanus Hike. There is also an overnight hut on Galpin Peak at 596 meters above sea level.

Fernkloof Hermanus Flora and Fauna

Fynbos is one of the most diverse yet distinctive floras in the world, characterized by evergreen heaths and shrubs, and noted for the Proteas. The Fynbos of the reserve forms part of the Fynbos Biome which is in the south-western corner of South Africa. It is often referred to as if it is synonymous with the Cape Floral Kingdom, one of the Earth’s Floral Kingdoms. However, when we use the term “biome” correctly, we refer only to the 2 key vegetation groups, namely Fynbos and Renosterveld within the region. The contribution of the Fynbos vegetation to the species richness, and in particular the Fernkloof Hermanus Reserve to the species richness, endemicity and the fame of the region is so overwhelming, that the Cape Floristic region and the Cape Floral Kingdom tend, incorrectly, to be considered to mean Fynbos.

The Cape Floral Kingdom

The Cape Floral Kingdom falls within the smallest of the six Floral Kingdoms in the world, and is the only one contained in its entirety within a single country. The Cape Floral kingdom is 9 644 square kilometers and has about 9000 species compared to the British Isles which is 320 000 square kilometers with 1 500 species.
