We saw several small animals and also took pictures of the beautiful trees and flowers. This is a very nice garden and we enjoyed the afternoon spent here. There were people having pick-nicks and enough shade to hide from the sun.

Clean and beautiful! Lots of local flora. Great for picnics. Dont wander too far in the back, there are lonely areas that may not be safe.

The botanical gardens is one of the places where you can spend a quiet evening or Morning just strolling through the garden. It is located near the Savannah and the emperor valley zoo. It is very serene and around the Christmas season the police Band play live music on a Sunday afternoon. It is great for families and a great... More

Well, the sun was very hot, however we played cricket, took pictures near the beautiful plants, the children enjoyed themselves. We came here after visiting the zoo, before we returned to Kapok Hotel.
