Learn about plants and enjoy views of scenic waterfalls at Lowveld National Botanical Garden, a plant sanctuary at the confluence of the Crocodile and Nels rivers. Boasting over 2,000 plant species and one of the largest collections of cycads in Africa, the gardens play an important role in preserving the variety of wildlife in the region. See marvelous yellow bush lilies, scarlet flame creepers, and clivias, then cross a suspension bridge to soak in some fabulous scenery. An observation point provides memorable views of the cascades, with the chance to spot a Narina trogon or, if you're lucky, an African finfoot soaring through the treetops. After your adventure, pop in for a bite at the onsite cafe. For Lowveld National Botanical Garden and beyond, use our Nelspruit trip planning tool to get the most from your Nelspruit vacation.

This place is a gem! Its good for a half a day or even a full day. Well sign posted, loads of interesting info on the fauna and flora. Walking trails are dynamite! Kids area and the coffee shop are great. All the staff we came across were friendly and fun of smiles. On my next trip to Nelspruit I will definitely be return visitor. Well done and keep it up!
It's wonderful to see a public park so well kept, manicured and safe to spend a day out. Every time we have been here there are people maintaining the greens and making sure it's clean. We took someone in a wheelchair and had easy access to most areas except by the potholes. Well done Botanical gardens, Nelspruit.
