While tourists are, en masse, directed to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden in Cape Town by the tourism industry; real garden lovers from abroad (who did their own home work) prefer to go to a garden one-and-a-half hour East of the ‘Mothercity’. No tourist banter like coffee shops, restaurants and Made-in-China-shops but a real more natural enjoyment with stunning views and only plants that originate (endemic) from this region (Overberg). The garden is situated in the oldest (official) nature reserve of South Africa.
Going through my archive I re-discovered this wonderful garden.
