The holiday season is upon us and for residents of Cape Town and surrounds, a visit – or two – to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, acclaimed as one of the great botanical gardens of the world, is always a favourite.
Ah, Cape Town. Bikinis and boardshorts, beach days, sunsets, cocktails, nature, nightlife, and that mountain. Impossible to ignore, Table Mountain is always right in your face. You have to go around it to get anywhere, and some part of it pops up in every holiday snap you take. But this is not a bad thing.
Sunshiny days are on the way, which signals the return of The Galileo Picnic at Kirstenbosch. Packed with blockbuster films and legendary venues, their summer schedule promises to put the fun back into 2020! Local artisanal market, giant lawn games and picnic before the start of the movie at sunset. Pricing: R109 – R130p/p.
