We work to secure our often-threatened fynbos landscapes, and protect those whose livelihoods depend on fynbos. Many fynbos species have already been lost, and more than 1000 are endangered.
For the Trust, it has been 15 years of growth, progress and learning – from 1999, when with Fauna & Flora International’s support, Flower Valley Farm was purchased; to 2014, where Flower Valley has entered a new phase in promoting fynbos care throughout the Cape Floral Kingdom.
Flower Valley Farm is home to a Cape Leopard (one of only a handful known to be living in the Overberg), and fynbos species found only in the area, and nowhere else on earth. As a business, you can now protect your own corner of this fynbos heaven. In return, bring your corporate team to visit us, stay over at our joint venture, Fynbos Retreat, receive regular pictures from our camera traps on your hectares, and much more.
For the outdoor-lovers, there’s an array of mountain bike and walking trails, covering the beautiful fynbos-covered landscapes of Flower Valley Farm and the surrounding Walker Bay Fynbos Conservancy. These are between 3 – 7 kilometres in length and we will show you where to start.
Not for you? How about a leisurely walk through the fynbos – enjoying the fresh spring morning with a fynbos hike? Hikes will range between 3km and 5km, and we’ll show you where to start.
We’ve got a fun bump through the fynbos on a tractor, while learning a little about the wonderful diversity surrounding you. Or enjoy a picnic in the beautiful Stinkhoutsbos Forest and see how many rare and endangered species you can spot. These activities do come with a small cost that needs to be discussed beforehand.
