  • This is a must if you love beautiful scenery, mountains and exotic plants. We also saw Mongoose and a lot of birds. There’re no entrance fees or parking fees.

  • Amazing scenery, and free admission. Easy to access with a car, with parking near key spots. I recommend 1 to 1.5 hours to visit.

  • If you enjoy learning in a heavenly environment you love this unique botanical garden. I have limited walking but managed to walk to the lake with effort. Saw a mongoose along the way. Its so beautiful and I learned a few things ill never forget. What a happy class we all were! Photo ops were really popular for all kinds of visitors. We were to busy just finding specimen flora. I was amazed that it was free and of such good quality. The entry both had a warm friendly soul to welcome us. He made us kindly know there was no stopping along the drive up to the gardens.that was important because it was so lovely along the way. I'm a horticultural nerd but I saw everyone else enjoying themselves. Not only enjoying themselves but showing reverence for this paradise! Go!
  • Absolutely beautiful and lush! This is the perfect place to go for a quick scenic drive or for a walk and picnic! A great spot for photos although they do prohibit photos taken in the road as they block the flow of cars. A lovely camping spot with lots of space. However, the gates do close very early so be aware of the time that you arrive. Highly recommend!
