Recommendation by Lemi
One of Hanli’s go-to suggestions for her friends to visit in South Africa is Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, one of the most beautiful conservatories in the world! Home to more than 7,000 South African flora, Kirstenbosch was the first botanical garden to be devoted to a country’s indigenous plant species. Bask in the splendor of nature at the property’s many attractions, including the Botanical Society Conservatory glasshouse of regional plants, a fragrance garden, an area for medicinal plants, a Braille trail, a sculpture exhibit, a cycad amphitheatre, flower lots, and hiking trails. Tackle the Boomslang—nicknamed after a venomous tree snake called the same—a 130-meter walkway that zigzags above the arboretum for spectacular aerial views of Kirstenbosch and some portions of Cape Town beyond.
