“Relaxing in the sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

That's my garden away from home. It's good for a walk or just lying on the grass in the shade of a tree. It's safe and ideal for picnics (no braais allowed). The only draw-back is that one is not allowed to play with a ball! Sometimes there are concerts or markets on site.

“Great introduction to SA and Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This was our first chance to walk and explore in Africa and we were introduced to native flora and some of the fauna preparatory to upcoming safari trip. It is a large and well-organized garden that offers diverse plants and environments. Good for using legs after long flights.

“Family Favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

The Pretoria National Botanical Gardens has turned into a family favourite, through the seasons the garden's have so much to offer. Children friendly walks - the Succulent Garden is a hit with the kids, good food at the coffee shop lots of parking and a reasonable entry fee make it a great option to get out and enjoy some local scenery.

“Great day out!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Some friends and I spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon here picnicking and listening to live bands. We had a lovely time in these beautiful surroundings. The park was clean and everything had been properly arranged by the corporate sponsor for a fantasic music in the gardens.
On a seperate note, thank you #oldmutual for #musicinthegardens and micasa!!!
