“Slightly disappointing.”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

We attended a wine festival there, which was too crowded in the size tent it was in, but we sat on the lawn, and walked around the gardens. I don't think I'd have to return to see the gardens again.

“Very pleasant surroundings with an option of two restaurants”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

The Pretoria National Botanical Gardens is well maintained and very people friendly. It has a range of biotopes to explore and many places where groups can enjoy picnics, or eat at one of the two restaurants. A formal restaurant is situated adjacent to the parking area and a more casual place is near to the waterfall and wedding venue.

“Natural Beauty”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Calm, peaceful and absolutely relaxing. Excellent picnic venue but note that they don't allow balls, bicycles... suggest you phone & check what is acceptable to the park.
