Oyama Bonsai Show

This weekend, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens will be playing host to the Oyama Bonsai Kai Club as they present a four-day, non-stop Bonsai festival. The event seeks to showcase the best trees from each club member and to promote bonsai as part as Cape Town’s heritage. There will be an educational area for people wanting to learn more about this beautiful art form, as well as demonstrations, discussions and a sales point to purchase trees, pots and tools. The highlight of the show is sure to be the beautiful artistic centrepiece created by the club. The show will be taking place from Friday 18 April to Monday 21 April 2014 at the Sanlam Hall at Kirstenbosch Gardens. Visit or for more information. Text Lizette Watts
