To list the Flora and Fauna in the Jonkersberg Bowl in the Outeniquas. This magnificent amphitheater has Engelseberg (2nd highest in the range) and Jonkersberg (3rd highest) overlooking it. Currently it is largely covered with Pine plantations. The expectation is that these will all be felled by 2020, when Cape Pine will exit the area. I am hoping that the conservation body that takes it over, will turn it into an outdoor playground. Conserving the Fynbos and Afrotemperate forest, will not be affected by hiking and mountain bike trails. There is also the possibility for Paragliding and canoeing. There are cottages on the property that could be suitable for self-catering accommodation. In the meantime, a pictorial list of what grows and lives there, will be a wonderful asset, whatever happens to it.
