Loose yourself in this wonder world of magic, form, design, incredible light shade shapes of every kind - a cactus paradise. If you love nature, art, plants, cacti, photography - you can spend easily an hour here just lost - in another world! Thank you Sheilam Cactus Farm for sharing your peace of heaven!

Nursery with a large variety of well established and enormous cacti. Really a must see as this is not something widely available elsewhere. Found it somewhat strange having to pay an entrance fee to walk through the nursery but being only R10 were didn't mind. The sheer volume and size of these magnificent plants makes this a memorable experience.

This garden has a wide range of succelants, cycads and cacti for sale at reasonable prices. There is an entrance fee of R10 to stroll through the garden, but it is well worth the money. Apparently there is more than 2000 different varieties on this farm. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The farm is also used for photo shoots and research and you can also book a guided tour. The farm is closed on Sundays, but are open during Saturdays and Public holidays. It is definitely a must see when you are in Robertson.

The highlight of our stay in Robertson!Absolutely incredible place, a true hidden gem. Massive collection of cactuses and succulents, all beautifully cared for. The amount of attention that has gone into creating this garden is incredible.

Beautiful scenic place. Staff not welcoming. Myself and my newly wedded husband came here on our way from our honeymoon. We had to wait a good 10-15 minutes to be helped. Not welcoming. Overpriced. Stunning garden, a gem. Felt like we were intruders.
