Aerial Boardwalk in Cape Town, South Africa.
Boardwalks are generally designed to prevent damage to sensitive areas like wetlands. An aerial boardwalk goes one step ‘above’ that and takes you up into habitats you wouldn’t normally experience. We’re proud of our beautiful aerial boardwalk that winds through a canopy of trees in the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens getting you up close and personal with some of Africa’s most beautiful trees and affording you some of Cape Town’s most spectacular views. The aerial boardwalk has been informally named - The Boomslang - after a snake, that hangs out in sub-Saharan Africa terrifying a lot of people even though it’s a very reclusive serpent that seldom bites humans preferring to eat baby birds and rats.
A walk along the gently swaying 130-meter long wood and steel raised boardwalk with the heavily forested east side of Table Mountain above you and Cape Town’s celebrated garden all around you is one of the top experiences to be enjoyed in the mother city.
