Interesting garden to visit, which is more than 300 years old. Do take the guided tour as the tour guides provide valuable information on each tree represented in the garden. Take comfortable walking shoes with as one walks long distances.

The horticultural garden features giant lily ponds with tadpoles and frogs, fruit bat trees with bats hanging from the branches, lakes with giant turtles and fish, plus trees planted by famous figures including Nelson Mandela and Indira Gandhi.

Absolutely worth a visit. Beautify big plant specimens. Maintenance level below average. (Careful not to trip over holes and worn down pathways) Lack of information signs. Bring water.
