Spend some time exploring the Company’s Garden. Access to the public park, which contains a rose garden, Japanese garden, fish pond, aviary and tea garden, is free.
Nature enthusiasts – and those just looking for a welcome break from city life – will enjoy leisurely walks along the tree-lined paths while taking in some of the more than 8 000 species of plants contained in the Company’s Garden, before stopping for tea and cake at the tea room. The garden is located right at the heart of Cape Town’s city centre and is a must-see on any visit to Cape Town.
The Company’s Garden was established by the first Dutch settlers in the 1650s. South Africa’s first cultivated pear tree has stood here since 1652, while various development has taken place around it.
Today the garden is a popular venue for festivals, as well as being home to the South African National Gallery.
No visit is complete without taking time out to feed peanuts to the squirrels or to enjoy views of Table Mountain.
