After a 16 hour flight to OR Tambo International Airport we checked in to our hotel in Pretoria. It was relaxing to walk around Pretoria National Botanical Garden. There is lots of information about the plants and their uses. We had great food and drinks at the restaurant within the gardens.

It is nice to have an open spaced area where you can get away from the busy city and just get back to nature

This botanical garden has beautiful indigenous bush veld, cycads and birds. Also great (but busy) park run. Often hosts shows and markets. Good restaurant with outside deck with view

Our visit to the Pretoria Botanical Gardens was a wonderful experience. We brought a picnic basket and enjoyed the company of our children and grandchildren in beautiful and pristine surroundings. It is beautiful to walk through the gardens and the view from the top over Pretoria is stunning. The trees and plants are kept immaculately. We will definitely visit the Botanical Gardens on a more regular basis.

What better way to spend in the open than in nature walking ..talking & showing children indigenous and beautiful plants.this venue usually hosts health walks/runs every odd saturdsy morning woth a great foodarket too.My preference is when there are not so many peoole...climbing steps the koppie/rock formations & bush type vegetation...enjoying the dappled sunlight & ponds & having the children challenging each other to get to other side...& to top it off there a restaurant with a great deck where you can watch some water fowl & birds after the walk.Delightful & affordable.
