It was great to enjoy nature together with family. One of the family members turn 70 and it was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and enjoying the birding and flowers around us.

Amazing park with great security. Activities include picnicking, yoga, exercising by walking up the hill and other outdoor activities. The park has various species of animals including Dassies (Rock hyrax) and guinea fowls. Totally work visiting.

I make regular visits to the botanical garden, mostly to photograph, but also to just spend time in the gardens. The drought is taking it’s toll, but the hardens remain beautifully maintained and worth a visit. Go for a picnic! Kids can run and play.
