“Stellenbosch Botanical Gardens was an amazing discovery..”

Definitely worth a look, with a lovely restaurant and shop. So peaceful and my two young children loved it. We could have spent the day relaxing there.

“Beautiful garden close to the university”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

This garden is a quick stroll from the Neelsie Studente Sentrum (Langenhoven Student Center), next to the Old Conservatory (for music students). It is easy to lose track of time...

“Chilled to the max”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

If you want to relax, this is the place to go! You can stroll around the garden and look at all the interesting things that is included in this huge garden. If you feel hungry, then eat something at the coffee shop in the garden.. Beautiful and tranquil and money well spent since you get great value for your money! You can even visit the little curio shop and see all the wonderfully beutiful bonsaai trees..
