Natural wealth, pressed down and running over
Biodiversity in South Africa
South Africa’s biodiversity springs from the wealth of its ecosystems. An incredibly long coastline, craggy mountains, species-rich deserts, elephant-friendly thickets, montane forests, treed savannahs along with the incomparable Cape Floral Kingdom makes this one of the world's naturally richest countries.
Many species are unique to South Africa.
