    Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens (Newlands) http://www.yowzit.com/za/botanical-gardens/11...
    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 mom...

    If i had to stay in the "wild," it would be here. I love the scenery, atmosphere, and also the many concerts that take place at the gardens. I went on a hike, and then a picnic here, and it was truly amazing, great family/friends outing

    I have traveled all over the WORLD ... and this has to be one of the most amazing National Garden's on EARTH! Bold statement but true !!!
    With TABLE MOUNTAIN as a back drop, and a big part of the garden, you are blown away by the scenic beauty and this 10 minutes from one of SA biggest cities ! With rolling lawns, detailed outlined walks, amazing fauna and flora, you have to make this a part of any CAPE TOWN holiday. And check out what activities are on during your stay, from 'rock concerts in the park' to out door movies, fairs etc its a hive of activity!!!

    And about to launch .. THE BOOMSLANG , a suspended walkway in the sky/trees !!! Wait for it !! It just keeps getting better and better !

    For any plant lover, its a must. Location is a bit out if you not from Cape Town, but its a convenient stop using the hop-on-hop-off bus stop.
    On a beautiful day, its Realxing and enjoyable.

    What a Stunning botanical Garden! I dont live in Cape Town so the location is not convenient for me but i have been there and the Capetonians feel its very convenient This is by far the most beautiful Botanical Gardens i have ever been to! Its so big and you can walk for hours and explore and read about trees and flowers. You learn a lot and you can take the most beautiful photos there! its the best place in Cape Town to take your picnic baskets and have a quiet relaxed day out with friends! Lie down in nature and enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds you! Music concerts and really a place to meet up with friends or spend a romantic day with your hubby! I love this place and would love to go back one day

    Whether you're taking a walk for leisure with your beloved or with family, it's definitely a relaxing pleasure, with such treasured surroundings.

    There is sadly only a small take away, well there is a restaurant, but it was closed off. I feel so much of value could be added if there was a proper restaurant.

    There are endless angles and options if you love photography. It's a must see, although, I must admit, I expected more.

    Wow what do one say, well run, friendly staff.

    Such wonderful gardens and the Fauna and Flora is world class. Such a haven in the heart of Cape Town to get away from the hassle and bustle of City life. I frequent the gardens myself on weekends. Just one request - Please do something about your Restaurant, use to be a pleasure to have a meal there, now its badly run and un-organised, standard of food dropped. That's a pity.

    This is the most natural beauty that you will find. Avoid trying to visit during winter but summer time is the best. It's well worth taking a picnic basket and spending a few hours here.
