Gardens of Cape Town

Cape Town is home to a number of beautiful gardens. The Dutch East India Company’s Gardens are in the center of the central business district; closer to where I was staying in the suburbs are the Arderne Gardens and the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. I enjoyed attending one of Kirstenbosch’s Sunday evening outdoor concerts, a Cape Town tradition.
