2013 is a milestone year for Kirstenbosch and the Botanical Society as they celebrate their Centenary. Learn the story of the Garden in the monthly Centenary walks led by Botanical Society Volunteer guides. Taking place on the first Saturday of every month booking is essential. In addition to this a series of themed walks offer the visitor many more reasons to visit the garden.
From fynbos to proteas, ericas to medicinal plants, trees to the glories of the Cape Floral region and much more, the experienced guides allow you to discover so much more on the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Walks are free after entry to the Garden. Call 021 799 87 83 or www.sanbi.org.za
