Mantis Collection: Property Spotlight

Welcome to the newest feature of the Draycott’s News section. Here we will be highlighting some of the other properties within the Mantis Collection. This month, we will be looking at the Kirestenbosch Botanical Gardens property in South Africa.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, South Africa

The annual display at Chelsea Flower Show launching into full swing this week, which means that most of the world’s botanical hobbyists are being drawn in to the UK. However, if you fancy marveling at floral delights at Mantis Collection properties across the globe then the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town is the place to be. Opened in 1913 as the first botanical garden in the world dedicated to a specific country’s flora, you’ll find over 7000 plant species, spectacular views, and myriad of things to see, it should come as no surprised that this is one of the most visited attractions in Africa.

SA1As an award winning establishment, there’s hours of fun to be had for you and the family at the gardens. Visitors can picnic anywhere on the 528 hectare estate and bask in the panoramic views of Cape Town, or enjoy one of two restaurants located on site.
