JJust 30 km west of the Johannesburg city centre, is an amazingly quaint experience fondly known as the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden.
Formerly known as Witswaterstrand National Botanical Garden, the 300ha garden is home to a number of rare bird species, which you can spot while lying peacefully on the lush green lawns that date back to 1982. It has been a popular venue for outings since 1880 and has been voted the best place for a nature escape in Gauteng for several years.
Take your time when visiting this special part of Gauteng. There is a wonderful nursery, a gift and book shop and a restaurant; and over Christmas and on selected weekends, the grounds play host to sundowner concerts. But the star of the show is the garden itself with a succulent rockery, a cycad garden, the water garden with water-loving. Take the whole family, this outing is for everyone!
