The gardens are very big it has the lakeview, monkeys heaps of trees and flowers. I would only do it if you are staying in town and have plenty of time on your hands. I would rank it an ok but not a must.

This is a nice place to visit as a large garden or park; there is no way on this earth that this is a botanical garden, sorry to ruin a myth. The price of entry is acceptable and great value. The park is very large...More

A good place to visit and go for bike rides. The lush vegetation, different bird species and a number of monkeys to make the experience worthwhile

Great relaxing time walking through the Garden, getting knowledge about many amazing trees there (if you only get a good guide), trying to catch by camera crazy calabas monkeys, marabouts etc. The garden lies at Victoria Lake which is by itself attraction.

Yeah sure you can. Mind you however that it is an open garden, so the birds are not kept in a cage. It is just in the wild, meaning you must be lucky to find the African Grey parrot, but if they are there, you easily can... More
