Table Mountain and its surrounding ranges are made of ancient sandstone. Millions of years of erosion have leached their soil bare of nutrients and it is the burning of old and dead vegetation that returns vital ingredients – in the form of ash – for plants to thrive. Fynbos has evolved to not only survive a fire, but to actively use the mechanics of it in its reproductive cycle.
