Needs a little attention
Nov 2020 • Couples
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!

Pretoria Botanical Gardens much underestimated
Sep 2019
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.

Restaurant is lovely. Gardens are beautiful but there are not enough benches for the elderly or families to sit on. Not good.

Not bad

Good variety of African flora. I was particularly impressed with the succulents garden.
There was a garden show or sale on when I went so it was very busy, and the parking was full.

Where tranquility meets beauty

The Botanical Gardens are nice to visit all year round. It is well maintained, there is safe parking, and it is affordable. What more can you ask for?

The gardens offer an interesting and varied walking experience whether you just enjoy walking or looking at the various plants growing in the gardens. On Tuesdays the entrance fee for seniors is waived.

birthday celebration in the park
Jan 2020
On Monday 6th January 2020 a big family group, both young children and adults, visited Pretoria National Botanical Garden as a birthday celebration.. What a pleasant surprise and enjoyable day it turned out to be. Beautiful surroundings well maintained gardens and lawns with prolific bird life for the birders.. All the staff members were friendly and helpful. . More than you restaurant are on the premises with clean ablution facilities I can really recommend this to all with a reasonable entrance fee to be paid.

Lots of room and lovely is summer
Dec 2019
The gardens offer wide open spaces. Ample parking is available and paved as well as grassed walkways provides good access to most of the garden. There are a few slopes that might pose a challenge to older or handicapped persons. Go early in the morning in summer when it is cooler and if you like to observe the local bird life.

Picnic fun
Jan 2020 • Family
The gardens are well-kept with a reasonable entrance fee. There is a restaurant in the garden which we did not try. There are short trails, ducks and a waterfall which can keep you busy. Benches are also littered through the park if you haven't brought a picnic mat
