The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens is one of the best places to visit in the world, according to the new award from Tripadvisor.


Cape Town, South Africa (10 August 2022) – The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens have cause to celebrate after being named one of the “best of the best” by Tripadvisor for the 2022 Traveller’s Choice Awards.

The awards take place each year, and winners are decided by travellers who have reviewed the places visited. The awards cover things to do, hotels, beaches, destinations and restaurants on a global scale as well as regionally.

“Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best is our highest honor. The award takes into account the quality and quantity of traveler reviews and ratings, and ranks the very best accommodations, destinations, beaches, attractions, restaurants, airlines, and experiences in specific categories and geographic areas, as rated and reviewed by travelers. Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best award winners are among the top 1% of listings on Tripadvisor.” – Tripadvisor

The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens was founded in 1913 after it was selected by Harold Pearson as the site for a botanical garden. He was an avid botanist and lecturer of Botony. His grave can still be found in the gardens today.

“The beautiful garden we have today is due largely to the foresight of its founders, the commitment and dedication of the staff during the early years, and the substantial support of the Botanical Society and its members over the years.” – SANBI

Whenever someone searches Tripadvisor for details related to the gardens, they will get to see the little tag on all images showing it is listed as one of “the best of the best” things to do.
