Wonderful specimen plantings, miles of paths to explore. This is a fantastic place that is enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. We enjoyed watching a couple of school groups on tour while we visited. It was fun to match up the names of some of these plants with what we'd seen as we'd driven from Stellenbosch to Hermanus, Simon's Town and Constantia. The fact that this, our last day in Cape Town, was one where the "table cloth" (cloud cover) came floating down the mountain while we were there, only made it more magical!

Directions: Again -- this is well marked on tourist maps and with road signage.
