    From the Botanical Garden you can walk through Skeleton George on Table Mountain. In the garden and the tree walk was the best!

    A visit to CT without a trip to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is a pity. The garden is worth a visit in every season

    A very nice botanical garden at the foot of the table mountain. At Sundays a lot of people come here for picnic.

    Great, very well-kept area. Super panorama with the table mountain in the background. Treetop path with panoramic view. Well sorted and tasteful shop at the entrance 1. We would go there again on the next Cape Town visit. For people with mobility problems but quite mountainous.

    A must in Cape Town for nature lovers.
    The Fenbosch, the flora of the Cape Town region, is beautifully arranged here. The large concert meadow and many benches invite you to settle down. A treetop path shows the overview.
    Several gorges lead from here up to the table mountain (very heavy area) and further paths lead along the foot.
