Cape Vegetation

I snapped these pics the last time I was in the Cape. The vegetation is a far cry from that of Durban so I have no idea what this is.. Who can fill me in?

    It is indeed a member of the protea family. It’s called a silver tree (Leucadendron argenteum). They are magnificent trees.
