Cape Town: Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden celebrates 100 years

The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, located on the foot of the eastern slopes of Cape Town's famous Table Mountain, is turning 100 years old in 2013. Founded in 1913 to preserve South Africa's unique flora, the Garden is until today cultivating only (with a few minor exceptions) indigenous plants. Although the offical "birthday" of the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is on 01 July 2013, the whole year of 2013 is being celebrated. Watch the video below about the Garden's history and its centenary celebrations. Enjoy! Kudos News24!
