About the garden

Step into an inspiring environment where art and nature cleverly come together. With fascinating sculptures, created by local and international artists, dotted among green sweeping lawns and spacious fields, NIROX Sculpture Park is a 30-hectare picturesque creation.

Just a 45-minute journey from Johannesburg and Tshwane, the park is situated within the beautiful Kkatlhamphi private nature reserve and is host to over 50 permanent and long-term installations as well as at least one annual sizeable exhibition. Meander through a trail of artworks that peek out from behind mature trees, admire the winding river and watch birdlife swoop over the serene space. Then, head to the woodfired grill and tapas cafe for a selection of delicious dishes.

NIROX also holds a diverse programme of events that enables visitors to regularly enjoy workshops, concerts, performances and festivals within the natural setting.

Make a day of it. I suggest going in summer as the lawns are green and inviting. You can get some small meals at the coffee shop, you don't have to eat at the main restaurant which can be pricey for what you get all be it good quality. I would give it five stars if they allowed you to take your own water bottle. The gardens are more of an attraction than the sculptures.

Amazing installation experience in the park. Come for a morning and enjoy the tranquility. However, fee does not include map and explanation of sculptures and not very accessible to wheelchair users or anyone not very mobile, and map is quite confusing. Maps are R10 each. No student or pension discounts. Entrance is R120.

This place is beautiful and peaceful! If you're a fan of art, you would really love visiting this place. I'm not sure if this is a spot where you can go and picnic, I haven't really seen anyone doing that. My only critique, is that entrance fee is way too expensive! We decided to go there spontaneously, but never expected to pay R150.00 per person.
