It's a big place. Glad we went in the morning -- by lunchtime the line to enter was long. Lots of up and downs for a lot of the area. Nice canopy walk. Definitely keep your camera handy.

One of the most beautiful gardens I have been to. 1. Easy access to the park. 2. If you're a SA citizen make sure you carry your ID for local rates 3. So many fun trails to walk through 4. The pathways are easily labeled so it keeps you on track 5. There are a variety of places to find your ideal meal. The restaurant/ tea garden or Vida 6. The gift store is beautifully laid out and the prices are reasonable 7. It has some of the most beautiful views I have seen.
Unique experience, definitely bigger than I thought it was. You can easily spent up to two hours here if you'd like (maybe even more). Lots of benches and grass, you can picnic here if you like. Do keep in mind that there are no rubbish bins in the park. The park has sooo many botanical species. Of course the best time to visit would be during blossoming season. The view of the mountains in the background makes it a beautiful park, not to be missed if you're spending days in Cape Town
