Botanical Garden
“Kirstenbosch, the world famous botanical garden is a 5 - 10-minute drive away and is a wonderful location for seeing indigenous Cape vegetation at the foot of the eastern slopes of Table Mountain. It's a perfect spot to wander around and take in iconic scenery and enjoy the unique indigenous flora and fauna. Local birdlife is particularly well represented. The trails are perfect for a relaxed stroll; a more adventurous trail run; or as the start of hike up the back of Table Mountain. Look out for: o ‘Boomslang’ treetop canopy walk to get great views and get a perspective from the treetops o Colonel Bird’s Bath Also known as (‘Lady Anne Barnard’s Bath’) o Sculptures o Dinosaur exhibition in the Gardens ”

“I don't have the words except that we love to walk and and enjoy the beauty mixed with historic buildings. Quote :There is so much to explore in terms of history inside the garden. Near the Adderley Street entrance a statue of Queen Victoria stands overlooking the Slave Lodge, while a statue of Jan Smuts looks on. Just over the road is the St George’s Cathedral, known as the “people’s church”—even during the apartheid era, all races were welcomed. It was also the starting point for the 30,000-strong demonstration led by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1989—and where Tutu coined the phrase ‘rainbow people’ to describe the diversity of South Africa’s population. The Garden is also home to the South African Museum and the Cape Town Holocaust Centre here, where you can view exhibits about the atrocities suffered by Jews during World War II. Beyond that, there are dozens of little historical treasures you’d easily miss if you weren’t looking for them. There is the Rutherford Fountain—which still stands on the original spot where it was erected in 1864—and the well pump embedded in an oak tree which dates back to 1842. There’s also the oldest cultivated tree in South Africa—a saffron pear, propped up on huge steel crutches. ”
