If you are in Johannesburg, and you miss a day out at this safe, peaceful, snapshot of what the Witwatersrand looked like 100 years ago, then you cannot go home and say you have experienced the city.
What do you get to see for a few Rand (ZAR) and safe parking?
An outstanding and dramatic geological section through a prehistoric fault
Mature indigenous trees from the area
A wide selection of Aloes, Cycads and many other indigenous flora
The Black Eagle's nesting place
A wide variety of birdlife
A long safe walk in the sun (and shade)
Vast open picnic ground under trees
Lots of interesting nooks streams and running place for kids of all ages
The beautiful Witpoortjie Falls up close
Peace and quiet in the city precinct
A good lunch at a really good restaurant
Satisfaction at the end of a healthy and interesting day out
PS there is an indigenous nursery attached to the gardens for those who want to take something home.
