The next day, my friends joined me as we took the Blue Bus. One of our stops was Kirstenbosch, a famous botanical garden at the foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town. The garden is one of nine Botanical Gardens in South Africa. It was founded in 1913. It was to set up to preserve the unique flora. The Kirsten part of the name is believed to be named after the manager of the land during the 18th century, J.F. Kirsten. Bosch is the Dutch word for forest or bush.
Next, we traveled through the Constantia Valley. The oldest wine-making region in the southern hemisphere, dating back to 1685. This area is well known for its wines and sweeping panoramic views.
No trip is complete without photographs of critters. Birds, jackals, meerkats, squirrels, monkeys and a fox.
The day ended with a lovely evening as we dined at Quay 4.
