Situated in the Western Cape, within 40 km from Cape Town, Kogelberg biosphere was designated in 1998 and covers 103 629 hectares. More than 80% consists of mountainous landscape with high mountain peaks, deep valleys, gentle hills and lower mountain slopes. The remainder consists of rolling coastal plains and marine areas. The coastline is mostly rocky with some sandy beaches and estuaries.
Kogelberg is the floristic heart of the smallest of the world’s floral kingdoms, the Cape floral kingdom. It provides a habitat for approximately 1 600 plant taxa of which an estimated 150 are endemic to the area and characteristic of the Fynbos biome.
