Apparently Stellenbosch has botanical gardens!
And it’s so green! Okay I guess that’s a given considering the name but I mean REALLY green. The grass is so green and perfect it looks fake. And the whole place is kinda like they tried to squash the Kirstenbosch gardens into a city block so cramped with green. It’s fantastic.
There’s a sign that says no picnics allowed so we didn’t take anything in with us, only to walk around and see uni students stretched out on blankets having elaborate picnics…
So am not going to tell you to go have them but I would definitely suggest taking a snack with as we did not have a good experience service wise at the café that is there.
Entrance is free for SU student card holders and kids under two, for the rest of us it’s R10 p/p and they’re open 08:00 to 17:00 every day .
