How to visit Kirstenbosch garden in Capetown, South Africa
Kirstenbosch is one of the world's best botanical gardens located on the eastern slopes of table mountain in cape town.
I was at the garden in October 2019, here is all the info you need to know to visit.
How to get to Kirstenbosch gardens
Though you can drive or take a taxi to Kirstenbosch, I'd say the easiest way to get there is by taking the city sightseeing hop on hop off bus, they make about 15 stops per day at Kirstenbosch in summer and 7 stops per day in winter.
I took the first bus, it gets to Kirstenbosch at 9.50 a.m, since October is summer in South Africa, the next bus arrives after every 35 minutes up to the last bus at 16.20
