Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden

Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, Cape Town

Enjoy a lengthy stroll in the breathtaking Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, as it has the reputation for being the most beautiful botanical garden in Africa. It is also one of the greatest botanic gardens of the world.

The estate covers 528 hectares, a cultivated garden (36 hectares) and supports a diverse fynbos flora and natural forest.

Therefore, it is an absolute favourite among locals and visitors to the Mother City for many reasons: picnics on the lawn with family and friends, walks among the treetops on the Boomslang Tree Canopy Walkway or enjoying a meal at one of the numerous restaurants and cafés, to mention just a few.


In addition to its natural and diverse beauty, there are numerous events that take place at the gardens during the course of the year.  The wonderful gardens of Kirstenbosch provide the ideal backdrop for those open-air gigs. Pack your own picnic basket to enjoy an afternoon listening and dancing to live music.
