Though when we went there, the western cape is under a serous draught but the garden is still enjoyable and really nicely looked after. I would advice anyone in Montagu to take at least an hour or two and have a look at the place....More

Our family loved the peace and solitude of the Nature Garden. It is well kept and lovely for walks. Would have been nice to enjoy a drink or snack inside the Garden.

Lovely walk from Montagu to the spring and back. Great vistas and nice nature. Easy to find the trail and easy to stay on.

We had a lovely picnic on the benches in the garden. Very quiet & beautiful. Needs a little TLC in places though.

The garden is pretty, don't get me wrong and would be a nice hike. But don't go there on a Friday afternoon when just passing through the town. There was no person in site to help us with information, no map and the bathrooms was...More
