    Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens (Newlands) in Cape Town
    Not so lovely in a howling Cape storm but, otherwise, one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Host to many wonderful concerts and favoured by the occasional rugby player looking for stolen moments of romance with partners unknown, these gardens are the perfect place to fall in love with life.

    Visited the Gardens as I had tickets to watch a movie at the Galileo. Was night time, so couldn't really walk around much, but the area we were put in was quite nice, with green grass and pretty surroundings, it made for a lovely night under the stars

    What a wonderful place to come and chill. Went here with the familia and we thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful serenity of Nature. Was a bright sunny day, and even though the place was a bit busy, we got a nice spot and a nice picnic

    After a long hike this was the perfect place to relax and have a nice and peaceful rest. green grass surrounded by plants, ducks and life, with the sun shining brightly, couldn't have made the day any more perfect. definitely want to visit here again

    This place is near perfect, was so tempted to braai here, but alas, that's not possible. Although it gets 5 stars with respect to all other criteria. Beauty, ambiance, it's so nice to relax, my family and i totally enjoyed it

    I went to Kirstenbosch gardens yesterday for one of their concerts. Parking was a nightmare, but it was soon forgotten once you start to enjoy the atmosphere.
    Having a picnic while being entertained is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy an afternoon.

    Kirstenbosch summer concerts

    Kirstenbosch is and has always been a big part of my happiest and fondest memories. Some of my earliest memories include stalking guinea fowl and wading through the rivers to catch tadpoles, swinging on the enchanted tree and rolling down the hills. Later, it became about escaping, leisurely picnics, sunny strolls and spending many a Sunday evening being entertained by top musicians. It's a very special place. The natural surroundings are phenomenal and you could spend time there everyday and still find a new spot to explore. It's clean, lush and so peaceful.

    We went here for new years and surprisingly did not feel the rush of all the people! WOW! You can keep yourself busy for many hours if you want to see everything! Most amazing nature, trees and beauty! I got the most amazing photo opportunity of Guinea fowls as they walked past me while I was lying down on picnic blankets!
    We took picnic blankets and food and had a relaxing day!
    The BOOMSLANG - Aerial walkway is a definite must as you will experience the most amazing views from here!
    BIG OPEN fields, animals, birdlife, Green and more
    There is a Moyo here as well as concerts in the park and much more!
    Incredibly beautiful.
    Entrance is also not expensive at all

    My favourite place when visiting Cape Town. It's really worth the spending time in the gardens. You can easily forget that you are in a city.

    Visited again recently to check out the canopy walkway AKA 'Boomslang'
    What a treat, especially for the younger ones. The place takes your breath away as if you're seeing it for the first time no matter how many times you've been. The information on the species are simply displayed and easily digested by young and old.
    Highly highly recommended.
    Pop in at the Vida e Café while you are there.

    Took my Gf here on a picnic, and it was the perfect location. A romantic vibe, the scenery is beautiful, and the introduction of the boomslang walkway makes it even more awesome. to top it off, it was raining also, but that never stopped us! Thank you for a lovely anniversary!

    Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is the most beautiful in South Africa. You can park your car in safety, take a picnic basket and spend the day in the Gardens. There's a huge variety of plantlife and you will get in lots of exercise in the clean crisp air. i also love the Spring and Summer sunset concerts where you take your picnic blanket and get entertained by the cream of South Africa's entertainment industry. Very friendly and helpful staff makes it a pleasant experience.

    I went there last night, to watch a movie (galileo), and it was simply amazing. Kirstenbosch is such a lovely place, we went to go sit in the garden, and had a mini-picnic before the movie started, everything was so beautiful
