It is that exciting time of the year when Kirstenbosch opens its Summer Concerts out on the lawns. Bring your blanket and picnic basket and be sure to get there early to establish a good viewpoint. Don’t forget some sun block as the sun goes down much later in Cape Town, around 8pm.

These concerts are great fun and dearly loved and well supported by all Capetonians so if you are a visitor book and go early. Great fun is had by all with impromptu dancing seen all over the place and a great atmosphere not to mention the beauty of the gardens and the view.
