Kirstenbosh Botanical Gardens

Guinea fowl have the most gorgeous spotty feathers, they look like something prehistoric. Half way between dinosaur and bird
Last weekend Jon and I spend an afternoon at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Kirstenbosch is definitely on my top 10 list of things to do in Cape Town. Nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, the gardens wind their way down the valley. The plant and bird life is astounding. It wasn't the nicest day there was some fog on the mountain but it was the perfect time to visit. The fog kept it really cool and provided a nice soft even light for the pictures. All birds were incredible, they were having a feast flying from protea to protea. They have concerts here every weekend, and it's really common to meet up with your friends for an evening pick nick, and sundowner. It was a relaxing way to spend one of our last weekends in South Africa.
