Table Mountain National Park alone has more plant species within its 22 000 hectares than the whole British Isles or New Zealand.The Mountain chain stretches from Signal Hill in the north, to Cape Point in the South, It is part of the worlds smallest, yet most diverse Cape floral kingdom the fynbos. There are only six floral kingdoms in the world and the fynbos not only constitutes one kingdom (the smallest) all on its own but is the only one occurring entirely within one country in South Africa. Fynbos consists of many different species of plant, namely the Protea family, erica, restio grasses and others. The jewel of Table Mountain which is also the emblem of The oldest Mountain Club of South Africa is the red Disa uniflora.
