Amazing and fascinating botanical gardens, with a stunning backdrop, what a wonderful legacy for the world. One of many benefits from that visionary man Cecil Rhodes. (not all that he did was distasteful in a short life). Well laid out and labelled gardens, many exquisite and rare specimens. Great tree top walk. Use the free guided tours, volunteer supported and very interesting insights.
I have been there 2 days ago, for the first time. This place is magical and peaceful. I walk for 3 hours and wasn't enough to explore all the garden. You feel safe inside there, there's security and workers in every single corner but, at the same time you have your privacy. Excellent place to go alone if you like to enjoy your own moment but, with friends or family the experience can be unforgettable. I had a delicious meal at Tea room after my walk. I highly recommend this place🤩
