Vad vi kommer att göra

Whilst experiencing the garden's spectacular sights and exploring its hidden corners, we will be spying on plants.

In addition to the botany, contrasting views of fog-clad mountainside and smog-clad city sprawl provide a backdrop for the tale of humans and nature in the Cape.
