“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Nice atmosfere, very safe also. I took my 1 year old girl and she just loved the plants and animals (ducks, pigeons and others). There is a nice restaurant inside de park, the tables are under the shadow of big trees, ideal in a warm and dry day. The prices are low and the food good. The wifi in the restaurant (free!!!) works well.

“place for the local events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

we went when Mandela's funeral was finalised and the whole nation was mourning (rather celebrating the legend that he was) . There was an event organised by the local authorities with food, music and shops around till late. The whole atmosphere was quite festive and we had a very good time (seeing the locals dance to tune of bob marley) and enjoying the street food

“Peaceful place in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

If you wander into the gardens just to see the amazing trees, then it'll be worth it. I've never seen roots that big!
Very old, lots of history, and, lots of squirrels! Very fat, cheeky squirrels but still cute!
It's a great place to come for a coffee or lunch as I don't think you'll find anywhere more peaceful to enjoy some food in the middle of the city.
Definitely worth a visit, and it won't take up too much time to walk around.

“Nice place to wander into.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We came upon the Company Gardens by accident and lingered for quite a while. Nice shady trees, plenty of areas to sit and have some peace and quiet. Cute sqirrels well fattened from the attention they get from everyone feeding them by hand. some kids were practicing some dance moves and the whole place had a really nice feel. You will certainly want a walk through if you are visiting the planetarium and Iziko Museum as they are right in the middle of it.

“An oasis in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We stumbled across the Company's garden when we were looking for the hop on hop off bus stop. What a gem! Bring some (or purchase some) nuts & bread crumbs and the squirrels/ducks will come up close to you to get it. The flowers were also beautiful, I loved the rose gardens.
