21st February 2018 – Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, Cape Town

On our first full day in Cape Town we visited the National Botanical Gardens of Kirstenbosch – surely one of my top ten best places in the world.

The gardens were as spectacular as ever and we had a few glimpses of birds on the coast road to Kirstenbosch (mainly cormorants) and at the gardens (although as yet I don’t quite know what I’m seeing).

I have created a travelog page of our stay in Cape Town for family and friends who might be interested (but they won’t all be nature photos).
