Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens


If you’re looking for a relaxing weekend away with your loved ones, then head off to the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens.

The  Botanical Garden is home to more than 198 bird species and a number of reptiles and small mammals such as the common duiker. Special features are the tree wisteria (Bolusanthus speciosus) avenue and special collections of medicinal plants, cycads, aloes, tree species, succulents and natural ridge vegetation. The green lawns and spreading shade trees in summer and the massed aloe collections that blaze into flower during winter, are just some of the seasonal features that draw visitors to the garden.

This is a great outdoor adventure that will keep the whole family entertained.
