Our flight from Cape Town back home wasn't scheduled to depart until the late afternoon. We'd been torn about whether to go visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden in winter but given how nice the weather was on our last day in town, we decided to give it a go. We're so glad we did as Kirstenbosch turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town. We entered the garden through the visitors center.We passed stone sculptures shaded by the surrounding foliage.
What a fitting way to end an amazing two week journey exploring the delights of South Africa. This was a trip of a lifetime but one that I'm still hopeful we can repeat someday soon!
