If you are traveling with the red bus, you get on the blue line, go upstairs and the road lined with trees gives you the signal that you are going to a very beautiful place. Really it is. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is a place that makes you feel like it must be a piece of heaven.
The seventh largest botanical garden in the world, one of South Africa's ten botanical gardens, is located in Cape Town on more than five hundred hectares just below the eastern slopes of Table Mountain. The gardens, which were established in the second half of the 17th century during the Dutch colonial period with the mission of preserving the plants native to South Africa, grew and developed by changing hands between different families during the Dutch and British colonial periods, and today they serve as a public space.
There are open-air concerts here during the summer months. Make sure to visit these magnificent gardens, where you can spend the whole day, suitable for picnics and long walks. Free garden tours are offered every day except weekends, and the tour takes about ninety minutes.
The botanical garden is open every day, with an entrance fee (210 rand).
