Enjoy Valentine’s Day in Cape Town’s most beautiful garden

Calling all lovebirds and nature lovers; Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens has some great Valentine’s Day options till 8pm this Friday. Kirstenbosch has always been a popular place to enjoy a romantic picnic and this year the garden will operate till 8pm, giving those coming from work enough time to enjoy the scenery and unwind together.

Kirstenbosch includes the Fynbos Garden, Forest Braille Trail, Fragrance Garden, Useful Plants Garden and a Conservatory – a desert house with a majestic baobab tree in its centre surrounded by succulent treasures from the Namib desert. The famous Tree Canopy Walkway (AKA ‘The Boomslang‘) takes the visitor from the forest floor through the trees and bursts out above the canopy, giving spectacular panoramic vistas of the surrounds.

Book your seat at Moyo for a Valentine’s Buffet Dinner including a welcome drink plus entertainment at R265 per person (booking essential). Email or call 021 762 9585.


You can also pre-order a gourmet picnic from The Kirstenbosch Tea Room at least 24 hours in advance online, or pop in on the day and choose from the picnic or main menu before 5pm. A vegetarian picnic option is also available and packed in an environmentally friendly bag at R250.
