I make regular visits to the botanical garden, mostly to photograph, but also to just spend time in the gardens. The drought is taking it’s toll, but the hardens remain beautifully maintained and worth a visit. Go for a picnic! Kids can run and play.

We enjoyed a family outing walking around the gardens, sitting under the trees enjoying some snacks and soft drinks. Al the while we were treated by a large variety of bird songs, and at the ponds the weavers were busy building their special nests. We...More

The National Botanical Gardens was a favourite hangout many years ago when we stayed in Pretoria. Was relieved to see it is still a great place to visit. A good balance between botanical exhibition and amenities like the tea garden and restaurant
