Nice walk. Just okay gardens (maybe the time of year) with ducks, squirrels and other small creatures. Lovely sculpture park/play place outside of the cafe where I bought a drink while watching my son enjoy the sculpture playground.

Really beautiful garden situated in the heart of Cape Town. The gardens are lush and filled with friendly squirrels. It is also a beautiful way to cross the city.

I almost missed these gardens. Others on our tour went to the Museum which fronts this beautiful and diverse garden. I opted to visit the Gardens for an hour, and so glad I did. Beautiful old buildings with architectural facades face the gardens on virtually all sides. Rhodes statue resides here, but perhaps not for long, as some want it... More

Wonderful to stroll down the avenue, avoiding the squirrels and taking in the historic significance of this area.

We had a walk through Company's Garden and fed some squirrels. Was a lot of fun! Nice place to calm down.

Spent a morning just walking around here, it's also very close to alot of the museums. They have a great playing section for people with kids. They have so many different species of plants, I think from almost every continent. People get to walk through this beauty every day to get to work. It's also a quiet place where you... More

This restaurant is managed by the Madame Zingaras Group and it shows. The Madame's magic dust has been sprinkled here and the food, service and decor is effortlessly relaxing, interesting and brilliantly done.

A great place to walk through. In the summer you will often find stalls to stop and look at and purchase many African items to take home. The well set out gardens themselves are great to walk through and do utilize the restaurant in the gardens as the food and service there is very good. If you walk to the... More

We visited this beautiful garden while walking back from Mount Nelson Hotel to our bus stop at long Street. I didnot expect to see such wonderful greenery and beautiful trees. The little squirrels that Sir Cecil Rhodes brought from North America were the most enjoyable part of this stroll around the garden. They were everywhere and very simpatico ! Visit... More
