Beautiful garden, with a somewhat intense hike up the hills though. But its definitely worth it once you get to the top, the views are magnificent and span as far as the eye can see. An awesome way to start your Saturday or Sunday. I had gone for a hike, specifically so I did not get a chance to explore the garden and walking trails. I will certainly go back to explore more soon.

Beautiful, calm, clean and well looked after. You can have your picnic peacefully at the venue. Entrance fee is quite affordable. There's also a hiking trail for the whole family. Oh not to forget the gorgeous and breathtaking waterfall. On site restaurant too!

Beautiful hiking trail, beautiful scenery. A perfect spot to go and relax in nature. It is a short drive from either Pretoria or Johannesburg. If you want to do a lunch or picnic please use plastic containers like Tupperware because they do not have bin's for rubbish. Don't bring disposable cutlery. Respect Nature.

Absolutely stunning!!! Worth a visit however be there early to avoid queues and to get parking. Bring your own picnic stuff, assistants with flat trolleys will transport your stuff from your car right to your picnic spot...Bliss! There is a ice cream van on the weekend serving soft serve and and a little 'train' ride for toddlers. Don't miss the hike and waterfall at the end. A beautiful way to spend a weekend... don't miss it!!!
