A wonderful spot to unwind. A great variety of flora and fauna of South Africa. There is a fun man made waterfall. There are several trails that take you to most corners of the park. The trails are not very clearly marked.

Experienced excellent maintenance of the park grounds was totally unexpected to see it looking so good. Pity the Cafe was closed on a public holiday.

Eye-catching botanical garden. Interesting. Lots to see. But the place could have been better kept up. The staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. Worth a visit.

This botanical garden is beautifully laid out with plenty of secure parking. Staff are friendly and at the coffee shop you get the best ever cheese cake! Many people take picnics which is a great way to enjoy this wonderful place. We are sure to return on our next visit to Pretoria!

We attended a Succulent Festival and took the opportunity to walk around much of the gardens. It was a cost time visit. Covid-19 notices were visible at the entrance, but no-one checked hands were sanitized and no temperatures were taken. Many visitors ignored mask wearing.
The areas near the entrance were neat and obviously well cared for. Venturing further into the gardens things deteriorated. There was nothing wrong with the wilder natural areas they were add they should be, natural. But the demarcated areas such as the succulent section need upkeep. Signs were damaged or missing and the gardens themselves neglected.
If you keep to the more open areas it is, however, lovely. We even saw dassies.

The gardens were in a terrible state. Bottles lying around in the gardens and weeds growing everywhere! It was a national disgrace!

One of the best group function dinners I've ever had was at this restaurant with its view of the gardens and a great buffet. The garden walks are also some of the best walks available in Pretoria. At the price you should make a day of it, don't be hurried.
