A morning at the Pretoria National Botanical Garden

A wonderland entirely surrounded by the ever growing expanse of our capital city.

The beautifully tended gardens and fascinating natural vegetation of the Pretoria National Botanical Garden, teeming with birdlife and small animals, offers escape from the urban rat race. A number of trails have been laid out to all parts of the gardens, and one can spend hours walking the grounds or enjoying a picnic while taking in the sights, sounds and smells.

We spent a lovely morning exploring the Botanical Garden on the 21st of July 2012 – the homemade chicken pies at the Milkplum Café alone was worth the trip!
