Pretoria National Historical Gardens
A 50 m high quartzite outcrop divides the Garden in two sections. Its frosty south-facing section and the north-facing, warmer section present two different worlds to the visitor and botanist. Paved nature trails give access to the fascinating natural vegetation on the ridge. Fifty hectares of the total area are devoted to developed garden, using almost exclusively South African plants. All the flowering plant species to be seen including 50% of the country's tree species, make this Garden a botanical tapestry, offering the visitor a glimpse of different biomes such as savanna, forest, fynbos and some plants of other biomes. The Garden is home to more than 198 bird species and a number of reptiles and small mammals such as the common duiker. Download a list of animals found in the Garden. This 76 ha urban oasis is a pristine getaway a mere stone's throw away from the madding crowd. The Pretoria National Botanical Garden, founded in 1946, is home to the Head Office of SANBI. This Garden successfully bridges the divide between scientific research and the recreational environment.
