     South Africa’s Cape region is home to some superb botanic gardens accessible from Cape Town, among the best of which are Grootbos and the world-famous Kirstenbosch, on Table Mountain’s eastern slopes. Book a tour of the Harold Porter national botanical garden to see exquisite fynbos, or schedule a stay at tranquil Babylonstoren, a restored Cape Dutch farmyard turned tranquil country hotel, surrounded by an edible garden from where fresh produce goes directly from plot to plate.

Cultural travel to South Africa offers just about everything for the traveler who wants a diverse experience including food, terrain, flora and botanical variety, and history.  Read more about South Africa in the Guardian’s article on winning a case of South African wine here!
