About
Explore the magnificent Kirstenbosch botanical gardens at your own pace. This audio guide takes you on a loop through the lower slopes of the garden where you will be introduced to the main plant collections and other points of interest along the way.  The tour is ready whenever you feel like taking a stroll. It plays audio automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smart phone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline. If you'd like a basic introduction to the fantastical flora of the western Cape and other parts of South Africa, and to be guided through some of the most scenic and interesting parts of the garden, this is the tour for you!

Misleading
This is just for an audio tour NOT entrance to the gardens which we had to pay for when we arrived.

The audio tour, we were informed by the cashier, NO longer exists when they tried to scan the bar code on the ticket so this is a misleading product not worth purchasing!!

Hi there, We're sorry you felt this was misleading. The description at no point mentions including entrance to the gardens, which actually costs more than the tour on its own. Nevertheless, we can and will make the exclusion explicit. This audio tour does still exist. There was an old audio tour using a handset at Kirstenbosch and that no longer exists. This tour plays through the VoiceMap mobile app and to use it all you need to do is follow the instructions that were included with your ticket. If you write to us at support@voicemap.me, we'll gladly give you credit for another tour or refund you for this one, if this is possible.

Stunning Great day out
Oct 2019
All my friends that have been to Cape Town said we had to go and they were so right.
What a great place, you would never think you was in a city when you walked around such a lovely place.
We spent 6 hours there just looking at the plants and birds and just chilling out.
You really have to put this on your list of what to do in Cape Town
