Cape Town, South Africa

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden lives up to its reputation as the most beautiful garden in Africa and one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Kirstenbosch is located along eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain. The Garden merges seamlessly with the natural landscape of the mountain. There is an entry fee of R55 (about 4 dollars), but it is completely worth the cost. Once inside, there are plenty of trails to choose from. We would recommend the Yellowwood or Stinkwood trails. Use the map above to plan your route based on what you want to see and how long you want to run.

Note that the area is quite hilly and several of the paths are narrower and are sort of paths/stairs. See this blog post by someone we know who ran there recently.
