Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden Tours

Founded in 1982, Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden comprises 74 acres (30 hectares) of grassland and savanna, home to more than 600 native plant species and over 220 species of birds, including a breeding pair of Verreaux’s eagles who nest near the park’s waterfall.

Considered among the world’s most beautiful botanical gardens, Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens offers visitors the chance to picnic, bird-watch, stroll through the themed gardens or attend various events hosted throughout the year — all far from the noise of Johannesburg’s city center. The garden also offers guided tours and workshops on topics like geological formations or butterflies for guests interested in learning more.

Eagles Fare Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and tea, while Nursery @ the Garden sells some of the same native plants on display within Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden.

Practical Info

Spring (September to November) is one of the best times to visit the garden, as many of the flowers will be in bloom.
