Natural Diversity of the Cape Peninsula
This collection of photographs of the Cape Peninsula - the little finger of land extending south from Table Mountain to the Cape of Good Hope at Africa's southwestern tip - lends eyes to inhabitants and visitors alike. Each chapter explores one of seven different types of habitat that co-exist in this small area, including the diverse mountain fynbos for which the Cape is justly famous.
