  • One of the biggest surprises I've had, even in relation to other botanical gardens was among them. A wonderful place, quiet and pastoral. Garden and recycled wood facilities that makes the children. There is also the rain forest that's very hot days refreshes. The staff is very gracious. We spent an hour there magical family.

  • We expected to see a garden that looks​ like a Paradise. I suppose it used to being this kind of place. But now it is quite pure garden, probably they miss finance support from government. I would come back with a volunteering​.
  • Lovely visit and well worth visiting. Warm welcome on arrival. Great views. You'll also find out about an army look out post among the botanical gardens and rain forest.
  • Great place to sit and have cofee between one of the most beautiful dessert forests! A uniq experience!
  • They threw us out when we asked if we could eat their. We payed for being there and their only replay was that "you can't eat here if you don't buy food" They also said that your not allowed to bring dogs and they have dogs there. Such hypocrits!
  • It is too expensive and too far away from the city to be worth it to come. It is very small and it costs very much for what it gives. The service was not very good and the owner was very rude when we asked if we could eat our sandwiches in the area.
