Klapmuts is a small town at the foot of the isolated Klapmuts hill which is surrounded by wine farms. The Klapmuts hill consists of a combination of sandstone, granite, and shale conglomerate. The vegetation that thrives on this soil type is predominantly the threatened Swaartland shale renosterveld. At the top of the hill, there is geological evidence of an Afrotemperae forest which consisted of Breede river Yellow wood trees. A conservancy was set up in 2004 and the area’s plants and wildlife are now protected.
