Lovely gardens maintained by the community.

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the Nature gardens with our 2 young boys. Lots of lovely little paths to explore and beautiful views. Very neat and enjoyable.

Not a big place and not showy. It was very peaceful and lots of birds - like kingfishers. Not a very big place and probably it's worth an hour. Lots of places to sit with good views. We didn't see any other visitors in our time in the garden.

I think we chose the wrong time to visit the nature garden as it is very dry due to a drought, and maybe November is a bit to far into summer. But we enjoyed it to walk along the little stream where is is much greener due to the water which they irrigate on the areas around it. We also... More

This is a little oasis in the middle of Montagu. When we were there they had an amazing exhibit of bonsai created by local South African gardeners. There's even a delightful little gift shop.

It was a lovely outing. The community care for the indigenous garden and create a lovely meeting place for freinds over tea. Served for a few months of the year. We found the gardens scenic and enjoyed the flowers. The tea was reasonably priced and homemade eats served

Wife and Iwalked up the trial to the top of Bessies Kop and nack in qbout 90 minutes. Although hot, it was worth it. Bring own water - no kiosk. Beautiful scenerary of surrounding mountains and varied flora. Really worth the outing.

A wonderful place to have a picnic and/ or just relax with a nice book. Plenty of birds especially near the reeds. My wife and I could watch them for hours. Well worth a visit.

An opportunity to meet the happily retired locals. Tea and a choice of up to 3 cakes for a bargain of R 20,00 . Easy walks in the indigenous garden.

We love going to the Nature Garden for picnics. It's always well kept and peaceful. We also had an easter egg hunt in the garden a few weeks ago, the kids loved it!

In the heat and drought we found this gem. Beautiful in its simplicity with benches scattered around the small gurgling stream with several small pools we spend more than two hours of simply relaxing and enjoying thr fresh air and impressing surrounding mountains
