These Unique and Beautiful Botanical Gardens are a real treat for the nature lover. Home to several rare and even endangered species of plants and animals, the botanical gardens are extremely important from the point of view of ecology and conservation. The Fynbos which are a rare variety of bush-like vegetation which are unique to this geographical area are preserved and bred here. Around 7000 species of plants are currently under cultivation.

The place is a part of a Natural Reserve so you are able to see many rare species of birds and animals inhabiting it as well. The gardens are not just a beautiful sight but an amazing initiative to preserve the natural wealth of Cape Town. As they are located on a mountainside, their beauty is augmented manifold by the elevation and uniqueness of these mountains.

Be sure to enjoy your walks up the mountain as you discover more and more about the amazing wildlife and plant life of the region. It is a definite must do for adventurers and nature lovers.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, Cape Town Reviews - Write a Review

  • No wonder that this is among the first few botanical gardens in the world. This place is amazing. It covers a large area and you need time to visit it but once you are inside you wont want to go out. One of most beautiful views of my life. Thousands of species of plants and very very well organized. This is really a star attraction of cape Town

  • Beautiful beautiful place to enjoy the natural environment of Cape Town. During the day,walk through the gardens, eat at the restaurants or bring a picnic. There are Summer concerts some evenings to enjoy local and international bands and singers. Definitely one of the top 5 things to do if you’re in Cape Town

  • We had a fantastic guide who had us in stitches with his comments. Very knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the place, Andrew was an added attraction who made the history and botany come alive. The place is tranquil, peaceful, has benches to rest if needed, has a cart to transport old, young, wary... Anyone really.... Around the garden. Restaurants, information centres, helpful, friendly staff, lots of tourists!!! Great all round experience

  • What an amazing display of African botanicals. I wish I had set aside more time to enjoy. Next time I'll begin with a light breakfast in the cafe and pack my lunch enjoying it on the lawns with spectacular views. The gift shop also has lots to offer.

  • Beautiful garden - can walk for hours with interesting plants to see. Guided tours available. Nice shop to buy good quality gifts for overseas guests or family. Tea house restaurant has excellent staff, good food and desserts, although often busy in good weather and pricey. R132 for quiche, and over R100 for hake fish - expensive for locals.
