Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden

I will be visiting Cape Town in December'16, was making my itinerary for the city. I want to visit Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Table top mountain, is it better to visit the garden on the way to table top or shall I visit both the places on separate days.

Visiting both on the same day is easily doable; if, the TM cable car is not shut down.

The Table Mountain cable car is occasionally shut down due to high winds at the top of the mountain.

So be prepared to be flexible.

We did it in the same day and it was very easy. Start early with the Mountain, buy your tickets online to save queuing.

Go there from 9:30 till like noon. And the go for lunch and afternoon in Kirstenbosh.

you can use the Red bus hop on Hop off tour, for easy travels.
