This was a great relaxing experience with a nice waterfall and great parks. The flowers are beautiful and it is an over all nice experience to be surrounded by God's creation.

After finishing our Parkrun with 2000 other participants, we rested our legs on the lush green gardens, surrounded by a variety of biomes that is represented in South Africa. We had a beautiful view of the Forest Biomes with a waterfall that sets the perfect backdrop for a photo shoot for our 2 year old daugter. We enjoyed a Coffee at the restuarant with great service and decided to go to the North facing slope of the Gardens were we saw beautiful succulents and enjoyed the pram friendly routes that the Gardens have to offer. The Gardens is Perfect for Picnics, Photo shoots and just to have a wonderful day outside.

After a 16 hour flight to OR Tambo International Airport we checked in to our hotel in Pretoria. It was relaxing to walk around Pretoria National Botanical Garden. There is lots of information about the plants and their uses. We had great food and drinks at the restaurant within the gardens.
