Optional Excursion – National Botanical Garden – Wednesday, 12 November 2014

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain. It was established in 1913 to promote, conserve and display the extraordinarily rich and diverse flora of southern Africa, and was the first botanic garden in the world to be devoted to a country's indigenous flora. Kirstenbosch displays a wide variety of the unique plant life of the Cape Flora, also known as fynbos, as well as plants from all the diverse regions of southern Africa. Those that cannot survive outdoors, such as plants from the arid regions, are grown in the Botanical Society Conservatory. There are over 7,000 species in cultivation at Kirstenbosch, including many rare and threatened species.

Centenary Tree Canopy WalkwayCentenary Tree Canopy WalkwayCentenary Tree Canopy Walkway

The Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway is a new curved steel and timber bridge that winds and dips its way through and over the trees of the Arboretum. Inspired by a snake skeleton, and informally called 'The Boomslang' (meaning tree snake), it is a low-maintenance, low-impact sculptural raised walkway. The Walkway takes the visitor from the forest floor into and through the trees and bursts out above the canopy, giving spectacular 360 degree vistas of the surrounding mountains, Garden and Cape Flats.

Delegates who would like to tour the garden can indicate on the registration form. A shuttle bus will depart CTICC at 14:00 and return at 17:00, or delegates who choose to visit the garden and are registered for the banquet, may stay for the banquet here at 18:30. Entrance to the garden is R45 per person which is payable at the gate (not included in banquet fee).
