"BOTANICAL GARDEN KIRSTENBOSCH" Kirstenbosch Gardens Tip by LysDor

Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Town: 8 reviews and 7 photos


Favorite thing: One of the spectacular features of Kirstenbosch Garden is its location.

Cape Town's Table Top Mountain creates a magnificent background for the beautiful garden of colorful flowers.

Hikers can also enjoy the Garden as three forest trails have been laid out within the boarders of Kirstenbosch. The Stinkwood Trail only takes 45 minutes to hike while the Silver Tree Trail takes three hours passing along the slope of Table Mountain. These trails do not require hiking equipment, only good walking shoes. Those wishing a more strenuous hike can use the Garden as their starting point along and up the eastern face of Table Mountain...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
