A years Botanical Society of SA (BotSoc) family membership ( Kirstenbosch Gardens & 9 National Gardens in SA)




I  dont think anyone has ever had a bad outing/experience to Kirstenbosch Gardens. I was blessed with a years Botanical Society of SA (BotSoc) family membership. Although I would primarily visit  the Kirstenbosch my membership allows me free access to all 9 national gardens in SA, plus other member benefits. I cannot wait to become a regular. Or even visit these gardens on my next holiday
. BotSoc is a national NGO. Any member can enjoy visiting any/all SANBI national botanical gardens any time in the year with free entrance. You can visit Kirstenbosch (CT), Harold Porter (Betty’s Bay), Karoo Desert (Worcester), KZN (Pietermaritzburg), Free State (Bloemfontein), Lowveld (Nelspruit), Pretoria, Hantam (Nieuwoudtville), Walter Sisulu (Krugersdorp). So start planning family holidays and explore the gems each different garden offers

No worries  to pay entry fees every time. 
I can highly recommend getting yourself/ your family a yearly membership to enjoy the beauty of this tranquil, scenic place or enter this amazing giveaway, (below)



                    I asked a few readers to share their pics and experiences at Kirstenbosch Gardens :

"
Kirstenbosch has always been a special place, but more so since we got engaged there nearly 10 years ago!  My husband had packed the perfect picnic basket for sundowners and popped the question on the rolling lawns overlooking the lake as the sun dipped below the mountains :)  
And because our wedding fell on a public holiday, it is now traditional that we go back to Kirstenbosch on our anniversary each year, now with two kids in tow :) "  Lisa from : Cape Town

"Looking at all the pictures we have of memories made at Kirstenbosch, it becomes accurate to say that our daughter Kate has literally grown up there. Our Botanical Society cards allow us access to Kirstenbosch whenever the mood takes us (which is often!) Be it for a quick afternoon cup of tea to catch the last rays of winter sun with a ratty toddler, or for a family breakfast followed by a scamper 
on the green green grass. Kirstenbosch holds a warm, welcoming familiar place in our lives. We have our favourite places to walk and sit- we guard these secret places careful not to share them to too 
many people.
We are always left in awe of the beauty we find right on our doorstep and work hard at not taking how fortunate we are for granted " Simone teacher at Western Province Preparatory School
