Absolutely beautiful! Lots of vegetation and wildlife. You could take a walk in the mushroom meander and explore the gardens beauty.

What a gem! Nature at its best! Beautiful and peaceful surroundings. A place where you can relax, reflect and enjoy being swallowed up by nature. Try it and share in the enjoyment.

We stopped here for a walk around the gardens on our drive along the garden route N2. It's worth the stop with great views across to the mountains and the actual gardens are well laid out. A cafe is also there serving a full lunch etc menu.

The Garden Route Botanical Garden is an indigenous garden at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountain in George. There are several routes one can take from a short 5-minute walk to a 5 kilometre Park Run and many more. The garden is beautiful and one can see that work is being done on the garden. A lovely outing and great place to take kids for a walk.
