“Tranquil gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We decided to stop at Garden of Eden on our way to The Heath and enjoyed the gardens very much. We paid a total of about R30 which is so cheap & definitely worth it. Our son who is 3 really enjoyed this excursion a lot...especially the tiny water streams running underneath the small footbridges. The gardens are very well maintained & just has such a great sense of tranquility & peacefulness. It really does make one feel very cut off from the rest of the world which is not a bad thing at all when you're used to being in the city! The bathrooms in the gardens were also very neat & tidy. Overall this is a must stop!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

This is one of very exciting place. You can hear chirping of birds all over you. Birds flying all around and more so in very natural environment . Only thing I do not like is that the guide is in so much hurry that he do not allow you the enough time to closely see and photograph the birds. All in all a good entertainment .

“Interesting, lovely walk in Garden of Eden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

This well-maintained facility provides a peaceful walk through lovely indigenous forest. One feels a sense of sanctuary, as if civilization is miles away. Easy to get to, on the main Garden Route Highway between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. Entrance fee is minimal.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We didn't see a loerie, loved the walk, the yellowwood is impressive and it is incredible people lived here 100 years ago chopping wood and making ships. 1.4km walk of bliss right off the road.
