Right in the heart of the Mother City, the Company's Garden offers a shady, green refuge for locals and tourist to wander and day dream. A historical treasure in and of itself, it is also home to the Iziko South African museum. Things to look out for: South Africa's oldest cultivated pear tree and a rose garden built in 1929. There is also a restaurant offering light meals and great tea. Things to watch out for? The giant squirrels! They are ruthless!
