A Walk Above the Treetops in Cape Town

This footbridge with glorious views of Cape Town, South Africa's Table Mountain is the Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway. The walkway was opened to the public in May of 2014, and was constructed in commemoration of Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden's 100th anniversary in 2013. Kirstenbosch, part of which lies in the area beneath the walkway, features 88 acres of a natural display dedicated to the indigenous plants and flowers of the region.

The gentle curves and slopes of the wood and steel Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway allow for stunning views of the landscape. The design of the walkway was inspired by a snake skeleton and is nicknamed "The Boomslang" (tree snake).
