Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

Tips from the community

The Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden is home to a large collection of African plants and offers trails carved out for trekkers and stone sculptures set in the gardens for artists. In summertime, you’ll often find live concerts held on the grass on Sundays. The garden is one of nine National Botanical Gardens covering five of South Africa’s six different biomes and administered by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).

Praised as one of the greatest botanic gardens of the world, Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is a favorite among both locals and visitors. Known for its Insta-worthy Tree Canopy Walkway, summer concert series, and breathtaking biodiversity, you could spend days at Kirstenbosch and never get bored. While the gardens are open all year round, we recommend visiting sometime between August and November so you can see the park’s famous fynbos flowers in bloom.
