Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

Kirstenbosch is the name of a famous botanical garden nestled at the foot of the eastern slopes of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa. The garden is one of nine National Botanical Gardens covering five of South Africa's six different biomes. When Kirstenbosch, the most famous of the gardens, was founded in 1913 to preserve the country's unique flora, it was the first botanical garden in the world with this ethos. Furthermore, what makes the Gardens so famous worldwide is that (with minor exceptions) only indigenous plants are cultivated.
