**Nature all around**

There are 1800 species of plants in the 70 sq. km. in the Kogelberg Nature Reserve in and around Bettys Bay, the highest density of fynbos in the world. Only in the richest tropical rainforests is a higher density of plant species per hectare. The plants grow in the mountains, on the coastline, in estuaries and marshlands. 77 of these species are nowhere else to be found on earth and 150 are rare, endangered and vulnerable.

The Cederberg in the west and Baviaanskloof in the east along the coastal areas form the Cape Floral Kingdom of 41 000 sq. km. which is 0,04% of the earths surface. In this area there are 7200 species of fynbos of which 5000 are only to be found in Kogelberg. That is why Bettys Bay is the epicentre of the Cape Floral Kingdom.

Fynbos is mainly divided into proteas, ericas, restios and brunias. Veld fires may cause rare species to germinate again, eg. the golden protea (Mimetes stokoei) that was discovered in 1922 and was last seen in 1967. It was accepted to be extinct. It is a tall, silvery, shining plant with a salmon-pink flower head. In 2001 the reserve manager at Kogelberg discovered 24 golden protea plants high up in the mountains, 2 years after the big veld fire in 1999.

Arthur Youldons daughter, Betty, gave her name to Bettys Bay. Italian prisoners of war during the Second World War did construction and worked on the road from Gordons Bay. During the War Cape Hangklip assumed strategic military importance as a sentinel guarding the Eastern Shore of False Bay from the lurking menace of the U-boats..At present Bettys Bay and surrounding towns of Kleinmond, Rooiels and Pringle Bay are growing at a phenomenal rate as not only retired people settle here, but new and varied businesses are established as well light industries, especially in the building trade.

Bettys Bay stretches between ocean and mountain for 13 kilometres, has no street lights, mostly gravel roads and numerous green belts allow for small wild life to multiply and roam free. Star gazing if one of the most awesome past times to be had when night falls. Two beaches allow for long leisurely strolls on seemingly endless stretches of soft sand whilst Draadbaai can keep keen divers and fishermen busy for hours. The Penquin colony is another memorable site to visit.

The lakes are suitable for swimming, rowing, windsurfing and host some fresh water fish species for the more relaxed angler.

In Bettys Bay you find waterfalls and hiking trails that wind all along the mountains through to the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens which offers the most inspiring variety of indigenous plants and flowers.

Invest in this beautiful part of the Cape Whale Coast and raise your family on fresh air in the very heart of nature, as it was intended to be.
