Babylonstoren is one of our favourite places in the Cape, loved for its magnificent, otherworldly gardens that are simply breathtaking. It was such a treat to explore their grounds with Sam and Jess after the crowds had left. We followed the pair from the lake shed, through lanes of fruit trees, fragrant lawns, a prickly pear maze and into the fynbos. We didn’t think it possible, but dusk’s light transformed Babylonstoren‘s botanical tapestry into an even more magical place.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
