A visit to the botanical gardens is a must for every cape town visitor. The scenery reminded me of the Jurassic World movie and it actually also felt like being in a Jurassic Park. My first impressions proved themselves as I sighted my first Dinosaurs standing around in the green oasis.
Of course the dinosaurs are just sculptures and unfortunately not real, but the cycads are. Cycads plants have a long fossil history and they already exsisted over 340 million years ago. The exhibition featured 9 dinosaurs to raise awarness to the extinction that the cycads are facing.
One of the many things to do in the botanical garden is: walking the ‘boomslang’. The boomslang is a tree Canopy Walkway with a magnificent view over the gardens.
The gardens are also perfect for picnics and even if you are not in the mood to bring your own picnic gear, the gardens are filled with restaurants. And if that wasn’t enough: every sunday evening they hold live music concerts.
This flat- topped mountain is the symbol of Cape Town. It is one of the new 7 Wonders of nature. The mountain is often covered in clouds which the locals call the “table cloth”. You can either hike up the mountain, which takes about 2-3 hours or just take the cableway. Being on top of table mountain is an incredible feeling and offer you an unforgettable view. An absolute must if you ever find yourself in cape town.
