Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is reputed to be the most beautiful in the world. The experience of rolling greens, splashes of floral colour, shaded streams and the multitude of paths can only really be done justice with a visit. Take a walk along the treetop “Boomslang” (Tree Snake) walkway, picnic under a shady tree and definitely pay a visit to the exquisite Sculpture Garden.

Kirstenbosch is a perfect way to spend the morning, strolling through the exquisite gardens with a coffee in hand, or lounging away the afternoon on the lush green lawns that abound here. It is ideal for all visitors, whether it be a couple looking for a romantic picnic or for a family outing – let the kids run wild while you take a break on the grass.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the Summer Concert Series, which features the best local artists and special international guest artists in a series of open air concerts. Get your tickets early though, because they sell out quickly.
