North-West University's Botanical Garden

About the garden

The Botanical Garden is situated adjacent to the Potchefstroom Campus of the North-West University. It covers an area of almost 3 hectares. Most of the plants in the Botanical Garden are indigenous with the exception of a few exotic plants which are of botanical, medicinal or educational importance. A section of the garden, around a man-made rocky-ridge, is managed as a natural field garden while the rest of the garden is more intensively managed. A variety of theme gardens make up the rest of the NWU Botanical Garden, including the Swamp Garden, Vlei Garden, Formal Indigenous Garden, Invader Display, Evolution Garden and Succulent Rockery. There are also tropical and succulent greenhouses.
