Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Constantia Glen on 1 day

Hello,

I want to combine the Botanical Gardens and Constantia Glen on one day. I can't drive and I think the best option would be public transport for me.

Which bus/train would take me there, take me between the two and back? Which one should I visit first?

By the way, is it right that Constantia Glen is the one with the best views?

Thanks,

Cigdem

You can’t do this with public transport, even with the HoHO, it’s not easy. The last time I was at CG, you could not walk up their access road from the main road. The man at the boom will stop you.

However, you could take taxis or Uber.

Beau Constantia has stunning views and is one of the three wine farm options available if one is on the HOHO Mini Penninsula Route. The other two options are Groot Constantia and Eagles Nest

Hi.

It can be done in one day with a private taxi or uber. Not possible at all with public transport.

Regards
