The start of summer is different in most cities, but in Cape Town, it is the sign of clear skies, hot days and the beginning of the Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts. The 2019/2020 summer series launches the season on 24 November and promises a star ridden lineup of musical performances.

Kirstenbosch is one of the world’s most extensive and inviting botanical kingdoms. It offers some of the best picnic spots in summer, along with the entertaining concerts in the garden’s amphitheatre. The gardens hold an incredible range of plant species, all of which are unique to the gardens and Cape Town.

The concert is a picnic-style concert where you can bring a blanket and picnic basket and truly immersive yourself in summer.
