Liked the guide. Well worth getting for 200 rupees a head. You will miss lots without a guide to tell you about the trees and gardens. Loved the giant tortoises and hated the rain... read more

If you want to see something different than safaris, beaches etc, you might visit there to see the variety of flowers, trees and plants. Even turtles:)

Beautiful gardens - lots of photo opportunities! Hire a guide at the entrance - it costs pennies and you see so many things that you would otherwise walk straight past!

Excellent botanic garden with giant water lilies, tortoises and lots of palm trees. Get a guide as they are very knowledgeable and cheap.

Lots of flowed, plants and trees plus this one has giant turtles but seriously it's a garden how can you write a bad review about a garden? It has lillies, ponds, turtles and plants cause, it's a garden.

We spent a nice morning strolling around these beautiful gardens, If you go I definitely recommend that you hire a guide to explain you all the varieties that exist in the park. Ours was not only very knowledgeable but also quite entertaining. Don't forget a bottle of water as it is quite hot and you can become dehydrated quickly.
