Features
Family-friendly

Home to more than 7,000 species, Kirstenbosch is a prime place to see the flora and fauna of the Cape Floral Kingdom. It's also a great picnic spot, and, in the summer months between November and April, hosts live concerts and open-air movie screenings. Bonus: a treetop canopy walkway popularly known as the "boomslang" recently opened, allowing for a new aerial perspective over the gardens.
