We went to the botanical gardens in 2016 for a mothers day outing with the family. We had picnic packed and had lunch under the trees. Not too expensive to enter and kids and pensioners have low entrance fees Over all had a good time and the ablution block was clean and tidy.

We had a lovely day, with a family picnic. The gardens are stunning and the walk is not too strenuous. Lovely Sunday afternoon activity for the whole family.

An enjoyable day picnicking for the adults and children, or just walk around and enjoy all the wonderful plants and birds that can be seen.

Visit the Zoo first time after twenty years - was impressed. Nicely upgraded and open spaces for animals. Very clean all over. Aquarium quite impressive. Safe parking now available. Conference facilities available - something totally different than the norm. Great outing for kids. Golf carts available if needed

I have spent some quiet mornings deep in the green scrub, then high up the hill. Special moments on my own. I've also walked with my girlfriend through many of these same paths (I live not more than a couple of kilometres from the gardens). On VERY different occasions I have joined what is hosted every Saturday morning in the... More

My wife and I popped along here on boxing day. It was a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon. The park is a large oasis in Pretoria and is obviously a good place to go for a picnic etc. Parking is easy and the entry fee was inexpensive. We were able to enjoy a large variety of birds and...

An early morning start, 07:00 for a 5km run. A great place to run and walk and enjoy the plant life. Plenty of different areas to explore, or just stroll and find a bench and take in the views. All looking very green after the recent showers, with the sun shining today.

This garden is well maintained and clean. The garden hosts different types of birds, fish and as well as wild animals. You can hire a Golf cart in case you are unable to walk for long. Bring your own food and do masti with your family.

Great place to walk around and enjoy nature despite the noisy roads on both sides. Different areas offer different views and vegetation. Can walk around without seeing other people - just enjoying the peace and quiet. Looking lively and green after the recent rain.
