The Tree Canopy Walkway, or Boomslang* as it is called locally, is a relatively new feature at Kirtsenbosch Botanical Gardens. A short ascent through the gardens leads you to the start of this suspended bridge. Surprisingly, you step out over the tree tops and find these spectacular views.
My daughter Pix takes a moment to enjoy the view.
Although I was not scared of the height, as I half expected to be, I did have a problem telling my brain that I did not have vertigo (inner ear problem).
– That it was simply all the people and little kids bouncing around on the platform and making it tremble.
– That gave my vision that movement when I looked out over the tree tops.
The trees were not moving, I was!
post script: *Boomslang is Afrikaans for a particularly poisonous snake. It translates literally as Tree Snake.
