Kirstenbosch is definitely one of the best botanical gardens I have ever seen. Every time I go there I am astounded by its beauty and discover a new plant. The Cape is blessed with one of the most diverse Faunas in the world. I won't bore you with details and statistics, but I can tell you that it is impressive. As example there are several hundred different heathers around here...most of them only indigenous to the Western Cape. The amazing thing is that Kirstenbosch manages to do it justice.
It has become one of my favourite spots in the Cape- oh no, let me correct that- the World!
