#MeetSouthAfrica and explore the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. It is one of South Africa's many beautiful national botanical gardens with stunning scenery ready to wow anybody who walks through it. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must-see for anyone visiting Cape Town. Sometimes during the year, you might be lucky to catch a concert and enjoy a day out in the sun, check the local press for these details. We recommend a visit between mid-August to mid-October, when the many varieties of proteas are in full bloom. The gardens are open 8am to 7pm (September-March) and 8am to 6pm (April-August). You can also get a guided tour of the garden on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 11am. Make sure to make you booking. For your day out in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gareden, bring a blanket, your picnic basket and some wine. And don't forget sunscreen, hat, camera and binoculars. Great picture, @xeniaoverdose! #travel #adventure #explore #travelblogger #travelgram #travelinspo #travel
