We walked the dassiewandelpad at a leisurely pace in about 1 hour. It's a very well kept garden. Definitely helps you to get 'out of the city' (if only in your head) when you don't have time for a drive to the country side. Well...More

Try their cafe further up in the garden. Its a lovely place to relax and enjoy some refreshments. Walk around the gardens and have a picknick. Go for a music show.

The garden is layed out very practical. The trees and plants are marked properly with scientific, Afrikaans, English and some local names to assist with identification. Information boards placed in areas describing interesting facts regarding grassland biome

Ran through here Saturday morning for parkrun. You had to be onsite before 8am AND you had to have your printed barcode to get in for free (no barcode, no free entry!!). Really lovely venue for a parkrun.
