Scaling the gates of the US Botanical Garden in the black of night is practically a rite of passage for Stellenbosch students, but this green retreat is really best viewed by the light of day. Established in 1923, it’s any aspiring botanist’s living encyclopedia, housing rare flora from across the globe. Lead yourself up the garden path past exotic ferns, succulents and bonsai trees, and then indulge in scones and a tea at the Katjiepiering coffee shop.

Open 8am-5pm daily (greenhouses, bonsai, BioBuild closed over weekends).

Admission is Free.
