Cape Town: Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is a world-famous botanical garden located at the eastern foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa. It was established in 1913 and covers an area of over 1,300 acres, with a wide range of indigenous South African flora.
The garden features a vast collection of plants, including proteas, fynbos, cycads, and ferns, among many others. One of its most popular attractions is the "Boomslang," a 130-meter-long raised walkway that provides visitors with panoramic views of the garden and surrounding mountains.
Kirstenbosch also has a strong focus on conservation and education, with research and educational programs for both adults and children. The garden hosts various events throughout the year, such as concerts, art exhibitions, and plant sales.
In 2004, Kirstenbosch was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its unique and significant contribution to biodiversity conservation.
