Accommodation near Pretoria National Botanical Garden

The Pretoria National Botanical Garden is located in the east of Pretoria in a suburb known as Brummeria. The gardens have a long history behind them which only serves to enhance their offering to the public.

Established in 1946, the 76 hectare gardens were developed as resource for researchers at the time. Today, while there is slightly less emphasis on research, mainly because the gardens are now in part a tourism business, they are still a member of the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI), and are home to the National Herbarium, a Biodiversity Centre and an Environmental Education Centre.

The plants in the gardens are divided into what can best be described as 'family groups'. These include a succulent garden, a cycad garden, a section for useful plants and one for medicinal plants, among others. There is also a wetland area, an arboretum and natural grasslands, all of which constitute the 'wilder' side of the garden. In between the plants beds are rolling stretches of grass, dotted with large old trees providing shade. There are also walkways in between the various gardens which patrons can follow in order to get up close and personal with the various plant types without damaging them.

Apart from the abundant plant life, one of the natural features which define the Pretoria National Botanical Garden is the quartzite ridge which roughly divides the area into a warmer, sun-facing side and cooler south facing side. The dassie trail is one of the footpaths which traverses the iconic ridge.

The Pretoria National Botanical Garden is a great place to have picnic throughout the year, thanks to the shady lawns, but if your style is less rustic, there is also a tea garden, restaurant and function venue.

Pretoria CBD
It was years since I was in Pretoria and I was happy with the way the city is. It is a busy and working city. I found it clean and user friendly, except on the parts of the city where there was consturtion going on.

Pretoria CBD
Pretoria CBD is the place to be, it's close to Church Square, NZG and most businesses and colleges, also not forgetting the State Theater. I just love that City.

Pretoria CBD
My kids enjoyed their first visit to Pretoria because of the amazing zoo we visited. They also wanted to visit the museum but did not get the time to do so. We all enjoyed a relaxed but educational visit to the beautiful Union Building,.
