(22 May 2014)

The new “Boomslang” Tree Canopy Walkway launched at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. It’s a 120m long snake like structure in the middle of the gardens.

This walkway, which had been on the backburner for many years, fit all the criteria and was a perfect way to mark the centenary celebration of Kirstenbosch Gardens “Boomslang” or Tree Canopy Walkway at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is now open to the public and offers visitors an unusual and unique view from forest floor to treetops in a snake like structure- yet another reason to visit the Garden. The walkway encounters many interesting trees en route: some old 150 year old trees that predate the garden like Hard Pear - (Olinia ventosa) and Cape Saffron (Cassine peragua), the 100 year old Wild Banana (Strelitzia nicolai).
