Owner description: The Lowveld National Botanical Garden in Nelspruit, ‘grows’ magically out of the confluence of the Crocodile and Nels Rivers and offers up a magnificent array of nature’s treasures. The two rivers create spectacular waterfalls which give this Garden its visually spectacular character.

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I thought this would be just another botanical garden. Big mistake, huge mistake. Initially it was a little difficult to find the entrance but once achieved wow. This was like walking in a forest. What a view to see the rivers raging in a botanical garden. We enjoyed a brisk 5km walk through the garden. When visiting Nelspruit again we will spend a lot more time so look at all the different plant and tree species. This botanical garden is also immaculately taken care of. What a wonderful visit we had.

“good value for money”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Have visited this park a few times and each time I am amazed by its beauty. The restaurant is very good, the nursery is indelibly cheap but it's the nature that gets you every time.
