Good day, My name is Michael and I am a registered Regional and Provincial Cultural Tour Guide, as well as a registered Overnight Off Trail Mountain Adventure Tour Guide. I was born in Cape Town and married with one daughter. I have worked and travelled throughout South Africa, as well as in many countries in Europe. We also do tours all over South Africa including Rock Art Tours, Safaris, Adventure Tours, Wine Tours, National Parks, and more.
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens
"Fun by nature . . . we'll take you there"
The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens is a natural wonder situated adjacent to the Table Mountain National Park.

When the Dutch East India Company formed a refreshment station at the Cape, this land became protected to secure the existing forest for its valuable timber.
Between 1657 and 1895, this land was sold no less than 9 times. It eventually became the property of the Union of South Africa in 1902, when it was decided to create a botanical garden for scientific, educational, tourist, and leisure purposes.

The Fynbos consists of three families:
The walking tour will include many hidden gems that one can only enjoy and appreciate with a knowledgeable Tourist Guide.
(This tour does require one to pay an entrance fee at the gardens)
We are ready to welcome you!
We meet at the pay office, entrance gate 2, closest to the Kirstenbosch Gift Shop. I will be wearing an official tourist guide badge with the Tusk Adventures & Tours logo.
Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
