Table Mountain at noon from Boschenheuwel
Look very carefully at the bottom centre of Fenwood Buttress on Table Mountain. A large rockfall in early 1996 stripped bare an area of indegenous vegetation. The fall occured late at night far above the crowded Kirstenbosch gardens and there were no injuries.

Just above Boschenheuwel Arboreteum are the more famous
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
