I love a nice garden and Kirstenbosch Garden in Cape Town did not disappoint. Established in 1913 Kirstenbosch has been called the most beautiful garden in Africa. It is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. The first time we went to Kirstenbosch we were caught in the rain so we ducked into the on site restaurant Moyo and had a great meal by the fireplace. We returned a day or two later and took our time enjoying the grounds. The garden is nestled below the majestic Table Mountains and is a little under 90 acres. In addition to the beautiful flowers and fauna you can enjoy great views of the city. I would have loved a third visit but I was already pushing it by coming back a second time. If you make it to Cape Town I would highly recommend a visit to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.
Have a great weekend!
