Arabella Country Estate: The Environment
Wetland vegetation is found in the golf estate lagoon areas bordering the property and in the wetland on the south-western boundary.
This vegetation has an important function to act as a buffer that filters out excess nutrients and performs a ‘polishing’ function for runoff from the estate.
A great number of water birds are present on the Arabella lagoon next to the estate golf course. The small bay area adjacent to the golf estate provides shelter and roosting areas against the prevailing wind and forms an important part of the Arabella wetland ecology.
The beauty, tranquility and luxury golf estate facilities are maintained by the homeowners association on the Arabella Country Estate.

Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve
Starting at Gordon’s Bay in the west and following the coastline up to the Bot River Estuary in the East and going inland a little beyond Grabouw the 100,000 hectare UNESCO designated Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve is home to the most complex biodiversity on our planet with more than 1,880 different plant species. The biosphere reserve is a celebration of ever changing vistas – from magnificent white beaches and wild rocky shores, sunsets over False Bay and rugged mountains rising from narrow coastal plains, to rose-edged vineyards and orchards in pockets of fertile soils in the highlands. Biosphere reserves are areas of terrestrial and coastal ecosystems that are internationally recognised within the framework of the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO’s) Man and Biosphere programme (MaB).
