Boomslang – a Walkway Above the Trees in South Africa"/>
The Boomslang, Cape Town, South Africa. A 130 m (427 ft) long tree canopy walkway is your next favorite hiking route! The scenic bridge rises above the trees and provides one of the most unique experiences ever. Found in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the walkway attracts visitors to admire the wonderful vista of the mountains and lush greenery.
The bridge is created by Mark Thomas Architects and Engineers Henry Fagan & Partners. It starts in the forest and then gradually ascents until it reaches the highest point of 12 m (49 ft). It really looks like a magic walkway from a fairy-tale and you should definitely go there once in the city.
