The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden can be found at the eastern slopes of Cape Town's famous Table Mountain. The garden is one of eight South African National Botanical Gardens covering five of the country's six different biomes. Kirstenbosch grows only indigenous South African plants. The estate covers 528 hectares and supports a diverse fynbos flora and natural forest. The cultivated garden (36 hectares) displays collections of plants, particularly those from the winter rainfall region of the country.
