Botanist Tour of Kirstenbosch Gardens

Few could argue with the location of Kirstenbosch Gardens on the inland slopes of Table Mountain National Park, but for all that, the stars of the show remain southern Africa’s extraordinary range of plants and flowers.

Joining a professional horticulturalist on a guided tour of the site’s 528 hectares and 7000 plant species will provide a seldom-experienced insight into the country’s flora, including its unique proteas – found nowhere else in the world but the Western and Eastern Cape.

Be sure not to miss the garden’s 130 metre canopy walkway over the foliage of the arboretum, or stroll its mountain trails, with an expert by your side.
