Yesterday morning we headed off to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens for a walkabout and a farewell lunch at Moyo with Dave's sister as she headed back to the UK early evening. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day to spend surrounded by so much natural beauty!

The gardens are HUGE and you could literally walk all day and still not see everything! I have always loved going there and yesterday was no different. It is a fantastic spot to picnic with family and friends for the entire afternoon! The history of the gardens is quite fascinating too! Some of the most well known attractions there are the canopy walk and what used to be referred to as "lady Anne Barnards bath"... which is one of my favourites too! I love going up there it is all woody, green and wet... which is just my cup of tea!

The canopy walk is fantastic too - but I didn't enjoy it half as much as I fell in love with the enchanted forest - which I am getting to haha! The canopy walk takes you on a winding walk through the tree tops and the views of the mountain and the city are truly breathtaking... sadly my photos don't really do it any justice.

Having done a fair amount of walking already, we headed off to grab some lunch at Moyo which is a traditional African restaurant located in the gardens. Jude was already entering "hangry" mode lol, so we ordered pretty quickly haha! We ordered a beef carpaccio starter and also decided to attempt a plate of mopane worms... but I chickened out at the last minute and decided to stick to my burger haha!

After lunch we took some time to just sit and watch the amazing marimba band and then went for another stroll in the gardens to walk off the lunch haha - after which we headed home as they were starting to setup for one of the Summer concerts that evening! Would love to have attended as it was one of my favourite SA bands playing... MI CASA! But nonetheless, it was still a fantastic day out!

❤❤❤

Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx

Excellent post on one of our amazing nature spots in Cape Town... we are blessed to live here. What was the opinion on the Mopani Worms??
The last time I was at Kirstenbosch was to listen to The Three Tenors ...

Discord definition: Discord is disagreement and argument between people. |

hehehe no worries xxx

Although, I will say this... you should afford yourself a little more time to adjust and familiarise yourself. Discord is very overwhelming to most people when they first step in... but soon enough it becomes old hat!

Amazing pictures of a wonderful day with the ones you love. I am taken back by the beauty, it surrounds you at every corner of the post. It doesn't hurt that you are a superb photographer, making use of odd angles and unusual subjects.

It only enhances an already superb piece.

A truly magical place and I would love to visit this one day. I have never heard of it but, I sure will be looking it up.

Thank you for taking us along on your adventure. You filled my soul with the magic of your day and I am totally delighted. You truly packed these pictures with fun! Thanks again!

Oh that tree top walk was not there, what an amazing addition to such a beautiful park. They have a walk for blind people to enjoy touch and smell plants which I found (many years ago) to be thoughtful toward all visitors.

What a lovely walk down memory lane under the mountain.

I used to love that blind walk as a young girl. Whenever my mom took me there I alway INSISTED on doing it haha :)
