Cape Town Day 3: Going green at the botanical garden

27 Feb

The Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden is renowned as one of the most amazing gardens in the world. It sits on the side of Table Mountain and showcases one of the most diverse floral kingdoms on the planet.

Unfortunately for me it’s not peak season for blooms, but it was beautiful nonetheless. Especially on yet another cloudless day.

On the agenda for tomorrow: I’m taking the commuter train down along the eastern side of the Cape Peninsula in search of jackass penguins!

    Don’t miss Cape Point! It’s got plants that exist naturally nowhere else on the world. Plus, a lot of baboons. Just keep your distance from them, and you should be OK.

    Are you heading out the Garden Route? KwaZulu Natal? the little or great Karoo deserts?

      Hi Percy – Sorry I’m so late in getting back to you. I am officially on the garden route as of this afternoon, having arrived in Knysna. But this really the extent of my garden route fun, as I catch a bus after two nights here for Port Elizabeth. Guess I’ll see whatever I can see from the bus windows. I’ve got an Addo safari planed for Saturday, then a night visiting a friend in E. London, then on to Joburg for last day. Doing a Soweto tour that day. You see, I’m cleverly saving lots of things, such as Zulu-Natal, for the next trip!
