Protea

Together with the springbok antelope, the Protea had been treated as a sometimes controversial national symbol in South Africa, both during and after apartheid. Today the South African cricket team is known as “The Proteas” and this has linked the flower to wider nationalist sentiments in South Africa. The former South African Prime Minister and architect of apartheid, Hendrik Frensch Verwoerd, had a dream to change the flag of South Africa to have in its centre a leaping springbok antelope over a wreath of six proteas. This proposal, however, aroused too much controversy to be implemented. After the demise of apartheid, the ANC government decreed that South African sporting teams, hitherto called “Springboks” were to be known as the “Proteas”, although an exemption was made for the rugby union team, who remain “Springboks”. In apartheid times, the “Proteas” was the Cape Coloured representative team.

Protea is the only room upstairs and is a luxury bedroom with a double bed and a bunk bed and full en suite bathroom. From this bedroom there are beautiful views of the Robberg Peninsula and Ocean. Lie in bed listening to the dawn chorus of the many bird species.

King Protea dorm

The King Protea (Protea cynaroides) is a flowering plant. It is a distinctive Protea, having the largest flower head in the genus. The species is also known as Giant Protea, Honeypot or King Sugar Bush. It is widely distributed in the south western and southern parts of South Africa of the fynbos region. The King Protea is the National Flower of South Africa. It also is the flagship of the The Protea Atlas Project, run by the South African National Botanical Institute. The King Protea has several colour forms and horticulturists have recognized 81 garden varieties, some of which have injudiciously been planted in its natural range. In some varieties the pink of the flower and red borders of leaves are replaced by a creamy yellow. Protea cynaroides is adapted to survive the fires by its thick underground stem, which contains many dormant buds; these will produce the new growth after the fire.

King Protea dorm is a mixed dorm on the ground floor sleeping 16 guests on bunk beds with shared bathrooms. Lie back and savour the sounds of the birds.
