Welcome to an Eden hidden in the West Rand of Gauteng where beautiful nature welcomes visitors and the rushing water of the Witpoortjie Waterfall, gushing from a height of 70 metres, soothes and revitalises careworn city-dwellers. The garden is home...more

Really great botanical garden!
There is that magnificent waterfall. Many routes to walk, some really close to nature, some paved. Sasol Dam hide gave many nice birds. Lot of flowers all around.
Just wear decent shoes.

Beautiful indigenous gardens with lovely walkways. The highlight is the waterfall and the off chance of see the eagles and their chicks on the cliffs adjacent to the falls. Being there takes you far from the City, but you don't even leave the City. It...More

If you are looking for a mental breather not far from the city lights, visit these gardens.

It’s a great place to visit with friends and family. Great walking trails. The waterfall is wonderful. However, the amount of litter, paper napkins, chip packets etc is shocking. Where are the grounds staff? Is no one checking and cleaning the place or is it...More

We are very surprised to hear you comments. This by no means what the average visitor experiences and we are regretful that you had this experience. The Garden is very actively managed, although on Sundays we only have two ground staff.
One of the most beautiful outdoor spots in Gauteng for hikers, family, couples and events on Gauteng. Very popular with nature lovers and families. Ideal for eagle spotting as well, as it’s home to some eagles.
The place is clean and safe, and has a...More

I am so sorry that you feel that you were treated badly by the tour company. This should not happen but sometimes it does,. If you have your own transport I suggest that you could drive there or alternatively use Uber. The Botanical Gardens are very easy to do on ones own. The maps are self explanatory and easy to follow. It is a wonderful place to visit for a few hours as the gardens are immaculate. There is a restaurant for meals and snacks as well. Maps are available at the entrance. Perhaps you can ask at the office if there are tours available on that particular day. Kirstenbosch in Cape Town offers daily tours so Walter Sisulu may offer tours on entrance as well
