Photos of South Africa / Western Cape

An afternoon at Kirstenbosch – Photographs

Updated Friday, 26 May 2017

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens is known the world over for its beauty and diversity. Only indigenous plants are grown in the gardens and the 528 hectares support a diverse area of fynbos and flora. The gardens boast collections of South African plants; many of which are from the winter rainfall of the country which would suit the rainfall pattern of the Western Cape.

Guided tours of the Gardens are conducted at 11h00 on Tuesdays and Saturdays.  There are a number of trails through the natural forest and Fynbos of the garden so one can take oneself on a tour!

Kirstenbosch Gardens

It’s a magnificent place to visit; whether it be for a lazy afternoon, a summer sunset concert, Carols by Candlelight in December, or for a meal at the restaurant.
