Lying between the high-rainfall coastal region and the dry Klein Karoo, the vegetation in this area is diverse.

The wet Southern slopes of the mountains are covered in mountain fynbos, which is particularly attractive in September and October. Many of the Proteas and Ericas are in flower at this time.

The vegetation on the Northern slopes is much sparser as a result of the drier slopes. This blends into the hardy, drought resistent Karoo veld very well
