Cape Town is a magical city. One of the things that I love most about being here is that there is always something to do and always something new to see. I recently went, for the first time, to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. This is one of the most beautiful places in Cape Town, not only because of the vegetation but because of the landscape and the fact that the background view of the garden is the side part of Table Mountain. Some of the top trails of the botanical gardens are actually the beginning of trails that reach the top of Table Mountain. The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is huge, but that’s what makes it so great because you get a variety of scenery. Because it is big don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes, you’ll be walking a lot. They have a restaurant at the entrance called Moyo which I’ve heard is really good, but unfortunately my boyfriend and I went on a late Sunday afternoon after lunch time, so they had already closed. But even if you don’t go to the restaurant, the gardens are very worth it.
