Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden

The Southern Hemisphere’s oldest botanical gardens

Could there be a more perfect picnic spot in Cape Town? On the slopes of Table Mountain in the suburb of Newlands, about 20 minutes away from the city centre, lie the oldest botanical gardens in the Southern Hemisphere. Kirstenbosch is a prime spot to learn about the thousands of plants unique to the Cape Floral Kingdom: the 36ha gardens boast more than 7,000 indigenous species. Don’t miss a stroll across the year-old treetop canopy walkway for a different perspective over both the gardens and the city beyond.
