The grounds were very well tended and full of pathways and flowering borders. Very tranquile place to walk, sit and relax. Well worth a visit.

Always like to stroll through these gardens, so many plants and trees from so many different places. Always something to see in different seasons.

This is a place I love, there is a huge variety of plants to see, it will take you more than one visit to see everything, my favorite area is the bridge that over looks a lovely piece of manicured gardens, its like a peace haven

Visited the Gardens as part of cruise excursion The gardens were a bit of surprise as the beds were not immaculately tended, but left a bit wild, which did not detract from the beauty of the plants and flowers in bloom at the time of our visit. It was very peaceful, apart from the rescued birds in the animal park... More

we had planned to spend a quiet Sunday morning in the gardens, as it happened less than an hour was all we needed. It is nice in here, but there's really very little to spend. We plan to return to Gib' in the spring, I think the gardens will show us a better side at that time of year.

Was a hot day and this was a great place to wander and view the fabulous trees, shrubs, flowers and cacti. Very shaded and tranquil. Needs a tea room!

The Gardens could be a little better cared for but all in all, a very sedate and peaceful place to visit.

Have to say I was not too impressed with this. The plants were not in the best condition, could be the time of year I dont know.

I understand the Botanic gardens are linked with Kew gardens, but it's not obvious from the run down condition they are in. The gardens although run down are still worth a visit as there are still some unique plants and trees to be seen. There is a fund started to raise money to restore the gardens to their former glory.
