Overview
THIS 76 HA URBAN OASIS IS A PRISTINE GETAWAY SITUATED IN THE EASTERN SUBURBS OF SOUTH AFRICA'S ADMINISTRATIVE CAPITAL, PRETORIA. A 35 M HIGH QUARTZITE OUTCROP DIVIDES THE GARDEN IN TWO SECTIONS. ITS FROSTY SOUTH-FACING SECTION AND THE NORTH-FACING, WARMER SECTION PRESENT TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS TO THE VISITOR AND BOTANIST. A PAVED NATURE TRAIL GIVES ACCESS TO THE FASCINATING NATURAL VEGETATION ON THE RIDGE, WHICH BOASTS A DIVERSITY OF INDIGENOUS FAUNA AND FLORA. FIFTY HECTARES OF THE TOTAL AREA IS DEVOTED TO DEVELOPED GARDEN, USING ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY SOUTH AFRICAN PLANTS. ALL THE FLOWERING PLANT SPECIES TO BE SEEN, INCLUDING 50% OF THE COUNTRY'S TREE SPECIES, MAKE THIS GARDEN A BOTANICAL TAPESTRY. VISITORS ARE OFFERED A GLIMPSE OF DIFFERENT BIOMES SUCH AS SAVANNA AND FOREST BIOMES. DIFFERENT THEME GARDENS ARE BEING DEVELOPED.
