Here you can find some of the finest examples of Cape fynbos, (or Cape macchia) a unique collection of about 6500 different species of plants that grow on South Africa's Cape coast. Many of these species are indigenous to Albertinia and the coastal nature reserve is home to many of them.
Albertinia has derived its motto "Home of the Aloe" from the abundance of aloes growing in the district. This has given rise to a very big health and cosmetic industry.
Nearby the town towards the Gourits River is a privately owned game reserve where you can view the "Big Five" in a malaria free area.
There are two mapped and marked routes to help you explore the area. On the historical Gourits River Drift Route, you can experience the thrill of a bungy jump or swing from the old bridge, the original African bungy site as well as seeing a large collection of cycads and the aloes of the Vals River Pass.
Nature lovers will enjoy the Dunes Route - it passes through the largely uninhabited Canca Valley, where the famous Albertinia thatching reed is harvested and a great place for viewing leucadendrons and proteas in season (September - October).
