  • A beautiful and well mantained national park. Entrance fees affordable, staff is friendly and helpful. My husband and I had a picnic at the gardens to celebrate his beautiful. We had a wonderful time - quite and very serene. Fun was had.
  • The Pretoria National Botanical Gardens are a must see. They host free Park Runs on Saturdays. They also play host to loads of festivals and concerts. This is also a wonderful place for a date, if you are so inclined 😉😉
