Botanical paradise!
Mar 2021
The waterfall in this beautiful garden was breathtaking. Every part of this garden has something special to offer - you can stay the whole day in this beautiful place. The well kept paths lead you to all of nature's beautiful trees and corners. We loved this place!!!

A wnderful Botanical garden
Feb 2021
I visited the Botanical Gardens just after the very heavy rainfalls in February. Everything is of course very lush, the lawns were in perfect condition and the whole garden is clean and very nice to walk through. Because of the previous extreme rainfall, the cascades of the Crocodile River were not s beautiful as when there are less water volumes flowing between the beautiful rocks. But it is a pearl of Nelspruit kept very clean and beautiful.

Went to go look at the Crocodile River after having lots of rain in the Lowveld!

So amazing to see.

A cheap fee of R38 to enter. The lady at the entrance was also very friendly and helpful.
The Garden is clean and looks well looked after.

Will visit again!

I enjoyed very beautiful walkways inside the garden. After the rain, it is going to be even more beautiful.

A beautiful, peaceful place to ‘be’.
Mar 2020 • Solo
Was passing through Nelspruit and had a couple of hours to spare so whilst my hubby was busy I stopped in at the Lowveld Botanical gardens. What a treat - it was quiet and too beautiful for words .. I walked the paths past gushing waterfalls, saw butterflies and birds, crossed the suspension bridge and meandered along the canopy walk way through the trees. I didn’t see any hippos but did spot a green water snake .. it was so peaceful with the background noise of running water and singing birds. Lots of info along the way - all well marked and informative. I stopped in the restaurant - friendly staff - for a drink and further viewing with my binoculars. You will feel that all is well with the world whilst you’re there !!!

We spend a day at the botanical gardens, we had a wonderful time, the gardens are green and very well maintained, if you need to get away from the city, and just find some inner peace and soul cleansing, then the Botanical Gardens is the place to go!! Well done, and keep up the good standard.

Nature in the city

Beautifully kept gardens, a delight to see. Very natural surroundings too. Access is easy , the paths are well indicated, a walk through the "rain forest" is as real as it can be. 100% happy with this visit.
