We visited the Namibia Botanical Garden and were rather disappointed at the state of the gardens. The drought has caused significant impact on the plants and it was sad to see all the aloe trees that died. The koker trees is the only plants that...More

It's a nice place to spend the time if you are staying in the capital city for any reason. It's very clean but remember that if you go in winter time, half of the plant will by dry. And by the way... It's free. You...More

One of the things we ticket off our visit to Windhoek. Spent about an hour or so, but nothing unusually different on the walk. Their "demonstration garden" looked lovely. Spotted many gheckos and a snake on the walk.

The Trip Advisor Wikipedia link to parliament gardens is incorrect. The Botanic Gardens are very worthwhile, not very accessible if you have physical limitations. ( there are stairs and hilly, rocky paths). Many very interesting plants, excellent descriptions, lots of birds, lizards, small mammals. There...More

A true national treasure that appears to be under-utilized. It's free and has many places to go to see the local plants, trees, and some of the birds. Charming trails and well-marked specimens, this is a good place to spend several hours. A shorter trip...More

Contrary to the Trip Advisor link to Parliament Gardens Wikipedia link, this is an entirely different place, showcasing the varied flora from all over Namibia. The description and explanations in English satisfy without overloading. Additionally, there are some scenic (keep in mind, this is Windhoek)...More

A lovely place to walk and see not only the plant life of Namibia but also some of its birds, insects and reptiles. Beautifully peaceful network of paths - could be better signposted though. Some of the plants were a little dry and dead unfortunately....More

The monthly guided walk through the garden with the Botanical Society is awesome! If you go often, you see the changes in each plant over the seasons. Magical. Plus, if you ask, they show you some of the edible plants, so if you ever get...More

It is free to visit but no help from the staff. We made our way along the foot paths to the bottle trees and also to the quiver trees. Everywhere there were dead aloes. We could not find someone to ask. And the garden is...More
