Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden


Kirstenbosch botanical garden is situated at the very foot of the Table Mountain in Cape Town. This is an old garden which was founded in 1913. The aim of its establishment was to protect the various species of flora found in the region.

The garden is a home to several thousand species of indignant plants and trees. The flora is properly named. Also given alongside is the information about the tree or plant. This helps the visitor get more knowledge about the particular plant.

One of the unique features of this garden is its location. As it is at the foot of one of the popular tourist spots in Cape Town, the garden naturally gets many visitors. Also playing a crucial role is the fact that there are walking paths throughout the garden which make the whole experience more interesting and memorable.

The botanical garden is a part of Cape Floral Kingdom which is a World Heritage Site. There are also special summer concerts arranged at the botanical to provide more information about its habitants.
