5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

These gardens are very well mainteained and were very restful on the Sunday that we visited. It's central location means you can link it into other local attractions very easily

“A spot to relax”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I've been visiting the Gardens since before I could walk. I love going here and on our recent trip back to SA I insisted on a stroll through the gardens.

I was very happy to see the gardens were well maintained. There were lots of people enjoying the shade on a hot summer day and plenty of locals enjoying their lunch and a good book.

There are numerous indigenous trees and a stunning rose garden. I was a little sad to see far less squirrels than there used to be. Despite this a visit to Cape Town wouldn't be complete without a walk through the beautiful Company Gardens.

“A Stunning Stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

A lovely walk from St George's to the Mount Nelson hotel with inquisitive squirrels (keep your eye out for the albino one), the Iziko Art Gallery and the Natural History museum along the way. Greta on a sunny day. There can be one or two funny characters but it is usually a populated walk so just keep an eye out.
