The 11-metre high boardwalk has been dubbed ‘Boomslang’ (Afrikaans for ‘tree snake’, which is very poisonous). Kirstenbosch Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway winds and curves its way around branches and tree trunks the way a tree snake would. The path spans abut 130 metres and is made out of galvanised steel and timber. It’s possible to get to Table Mountain from the botanic garden.
