Directions to Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden

This spectacular Garden is set against the backdrop of the magnificent Witpoortjie waterfall, and it covers almost 300 hectares. It consists of both landscaped and natural veld areas, and it has been a popular destination for visitors since the 1800s.

The natural vegetation of the area is known as the "Rocky Highveld Grassland" and consists of a mosaic of grassland and savanna, with dense bush in kloofs and along streams. A list of naturally occurring trees is available, and the variety of habitats accommodates over 600 naturally occurring plant species.

The Garden is home to an abundance of wildlife, and a popular breeding pair of majestic Verreaux's Eagles nest on the cliffs alongside the waterfall. Together with the other 220 bird species, there are also a number of reptile and small mammals, including small antelope and jackal, which occur naturally in the Nature Reserve.

There are several short walks that run through the Garden and the surrounding natural areas. The JCI Geological Trail gives visitors the opportunity to not only walk along the Roodekrans Ridge and in the Nature Reserve portion of the Garden, but also to learn something about the fascinating geology of the area. Guided tours can be arranged for groups.

The Botanical Society, a non-profit support organisation, organises a wide range of lectures and outings, and the official website is updated regularly with their latest events.

Finally, the Eagle's Fare restaurant has a tuckshop where cooldrinks and snacks may be purchased, and there is a nursery and gift and book shop which are open daily.
