We actually visited Hermanus but due to the weather ended up here, a little hidden gem of a place just outside Stellenbosch. I was mesmerized by the artwork, truly spectacular. I loved the gothic and macabre undertones of the art, combined with sculptures of wildlife...More

This garden is well worth a visit. We did a self-guided walking tour around the gardens using the very helpful map and notes. This garden is 10 years old and it is spectacular. Well worth the visit.

We walked the path in the wonderful gardens and saw all the sculptures. Wear comfortable shoes. There is a lovely cake and coffee shop also.

What a fantastic place to go and spend a day. It is a big rugged garden with the majestic mountains as a back drop and the lovely sculptures exhibited all over with great impact on the eyes. I will definitely go back again.

Dylan Lewis is one of the worlds most recognisable sculptors and this sculpture garden lives up to expectations. Every artwork and area of planting has been carefully thought through providing a truly memorable day out.

This garden has to be seen to be believed! The sculptures are literally larger than life and the design and care make this garden a sanctuary of pure bliss and peace. One must book to visit (R100) and therefore you have the place to yourself...More

This is certainly worth a visit--the gardens are beautiful and the statues are arranged in fascinating ways--on little hills, amongst trees, on undulating lawns. I particularly loved the animal statues. There is a nice little cafe to have a coffee and sandwich, as it takes...More

Advice from a Stellenbosch local: make time for a visit here when in Stellies. It is a must and should be among the top 5 things to do here. Wonderful place to experience the beauty of this area and see exceptional art at the same...More

February - as a bit cooler and less visitors, 2 - 3 hours needed.

We went in early February and it was lovely. We just emailed them the day before to book it and got in without a problem. Enjoy.
