The rain started coming down on the way there. Kirstenbosch is on the backside of table mountain and judging by the size of the houses it must have been an affluent area of town.
We went straight to the conservatory that had an interesting display showing desert and alpine plants of the area.
When the rain eased off a bit we wondered over to a cafe where I tried the Rooibos tea, this is a speciality South African tea that is very tasty..
Later we headed to Stellenbosch where I took the guys to Spiers, the cheetah place I'd been to on my wine tour. We did a wine tour there before checking out the cheetahs and the birds of prey they had there. It's a bit touristy but nice.
We did a quick tour of the lovely Stellenbosch before heading back to the hostel.
It was Champions League final night, but before watching Arsenal lose to Barca we headed down to the reasonable priced Buena Visa Social Club for some grub.
