Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden voted best in Africa


The World Luxury Travel Awards named the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden as the best botanical garden in Africa this year.

The award recognizes sustained commitment to excellence and outstanding performance in the luxury travel industry worldwide.

“The public votes for the World Luxury Travel Awards and the awards are awarded to travel establishments across a diverse range of categories,” says Nontsikelelo Mpulo, director of marketing, communications and commercialization at the SA National Biodiversity Institute.

“Our team is dedicated to providing experiences that create memories that last a lifetime and are absolutely delighted that the garden has picked up this award.”

The Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is managed and maintained by the South African National Biodiversity Institute together with 11 other national botanical gardens across South Africa as well as the National Zoo in Pretoria.

“The Biodiversity Institute generates information and knowledge, builds capacity, provides policy advice and showcases biodiversity and conservation.

“Kirstenbosch offers a beautiful space to relax in and explore the abundance of South Africa’s biodiversity. The World Luxury Travel Awards recognize the hard work of the garden team and the pleasure we derive from sharing this garden with the world,” says Mpulo.

The team invites visitors to immerse themselves in the natural heritage of the garden, and to enjoy the exceptional service offered by the team.
