Explore the Company Gardens, a verdant forest, home to a rich variety of flora. The Garden was first established to provide much needed nourishment and medicinal herbs for sickly and malnourished seafarers. The Gardens soon blossomed into a gorgeous botanical site that developed to host many different influences such as Dutch Baroque and Romantic Victoria. Your guide will point out the oldest cultivated tree in South Africa as well as the Rose Garden with its many different species of cultivated roses. During 2021 our botanical journey continues to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Kirstenbosch is world renowned for the beauty and diversity of the Cape Flora it displays, as it only grows indigenous South African plants. Enjoy a guided garden tour, taking in the highlights of the season, exploring most of the Garden while including the oldest and most famous features like the Dell. For 2022 our botanical journey continues to the Arderne Gardens, a South African Provincial Heritage Site. The Gardens with its shady glades and Japanese-style ponds, has one of the most diverse and valuable collections of exotic trees in South Africa.
