Kirstenbosch celebrates birthday with FREE entry

Cape Town - Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens will be celebrating its 101st birthday on Tuesday, 1 July with free entry for all guests. 

The hugely popular Cape Town tourist attraction announced the good news on its Facebook page on Monday morning, adding that they will also be offering 101 free Americanos at the Vida E Cafe at the Visitor's Centre between 10 and 11:30. 

Sounds like a party to us!

The garden recently made headlines with the launch of its picturesque new aerial walkway, affectionately known as the Boomslang. 

If you're in Cape Town and you haven't had the chance to check it out just yet, why not join in the birthday celebrations?

Kirstenbosch is open from 08:00 till 18:00 every day during winter.
