The Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town has been voted the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa (MBOISA) at Design Indaba Expo 2015. The walkway, designed by Mark Thomas and Henry Fagan, was the public's choice among the 12 nominated works in this year's competition.
The 130 m long walkway is commonly known as the Boomslang. It takes the visitor from the forest floor into and through the trees and bursts out above the canopy, giving spectacular panoramic vistas of the surrounding mountains, the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and Cape Flats. There is no additional fee to walk on the Boomslang, other than the normal Garden entry fee.
