Welcome to Cape Carnivores

Exploring the Drosera and other carnivorous plants of South Africa

Hi! I’m Hendré, a biology student from the Cape region of South Africa. As a young child, Steve Irwin and Sir David Attenborough crawled into my brain and never left, leading to a lifelong adoration for the natural world.

I am passionate about carnivorous plants, orchids, ants, and just about any other reptile, insect, or arachnid on top of that. As an avid photographer I hope to share this enthusiasm with you through captures of these amazing plants and animals. I started Cape Carnivores to better display the fantastic diversity of Drosera, orchids, and other natural beauty the cape has to offer through my numerous rambles in the region.
