A beautiful and well mantained national park. Entrance fees affordable, staff is friendly and helpful. My husband and I had a picnic at the gardens to celebrate his beautiful. We had a wonderful time - quite and very serene. Fun was had.
The Pretoria National Botanical Gardens are a must see. They host free Park Runs on Saturdays. They also play host to loads of festivals and concerts. This is also a wonderful place for a date, if you are so inclined 😉😉
It was my first time going there, I was really hyped up, my girlfriend suggested it, the price is very fair, the male cashier that helped us was super friendly😁😁 the landscapes are beautiful. However I feel that the park is not properly managed, the lawn on the other side of the park is not watered, the flower beds are not removed of dead stalks, some pathways are dirty and the water features are not functional. The park has alot of potential but I believe it just needs proper care to it. Enjoyed my time there.
A great escape from the concrete jungle. Lovely area to stroll around. Love wondering around and finding new quiet little spots to soak up nature.
Easy hike for beginners, just a pity the signage is not that great. Gardens can do with a little love, but the restaurant is lovely! Picnic spots is private and lots of shade.
