National Botanic Gardens

The Pretoria National Botanic Gardens with 77ha/190ac in area are the largest in South Africa. The plants are grouped according to their climatic region (the savannas of the Karoo, the coastal forests, the grassland plains of Namibia).

The Gardens feature over half of the country’s tree species as well as cycads, aloes and other interesting collections. Paved nature trails give access to the natural vegetation of the rocky ridge above the garden. Altogether there are 5,000 species of plants, including 300 indigenous species of trees.
