Visiting Cape Town

Botanical Gardens Cape Town
This weekend we have visited Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, about a 20 minute drive from Cape Town.
The beautiful garden was founded in 1913 on land bequeathed by industrialist Cecil Rhodes to preserve plants from different South African regions and some unique Cape Town species. A perfect place to spend the day, especially now in spring, with impressive blooming flowers.
