Directions to Pretoria Botanical Gardens
This 76 ha urban oasis is a pristine getaway situated in the eastern suburbs of South Africa's administrative capital, Pretoria.
A 35 m high quartzite outcrop divides the Garden in two sections. Its frosty south-facing section and the north-facing, warmer section present two different worlds to the visitor and botanist. A paved nature trail gives access to the fascinating natural vegetation on the ridge, which boasts a diversity of indigenous fauna and flora.
All the flowering plant species to be seen, including 50% of the country's tree species, make this Garden a botanical tapestry. Visitors are offered a glimpse of different biomes such as savanna and forest biomes.
The Pretoria Botanical Gardens is home to the Head Office of the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and which undertakes scientific research into plants and their relationship to the environment, including thier suitability for use in a human recreational environment.
