Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens

You may bring along a ready-made picnic, there are many shaded lawn areas. Please note that braais and gas fires are not permitted. We have adopted a 'Carry-in Carry-out' Litter Policy and request that you take anything you bring or buy back home for disposal.

Some of the Garden's special features
:
• Witpoortjie Waterfall - the surrounding cliffs reveal the fascinating geology of the area.
• Black Eagles - the only pair of nesting Black Eagles in urban Johannesburg make their home on the rock face alongside the waterfall.
• Succulent Rockery - a variety of some of the unusual succulent plants of South Africa.
• SASOL Dam & Wetland - take a walk along the boardwalk through the wetland and visit the bird hide.
• Cycad Garden - a collection of these ancient plants from all over South Africa.
• Water Garden - a stream with a series of ponds and water-loving plants flows past the restaurant.
• Walks & Trails - take visitors through both the natural and landscaped areas.

How to enjoy a botanical garden:
• Enjoy the tranquility away from city noise, look at the beautiful surroundings. Take pride in South Africa's indigenous plants and animals.
• Ensure that you wear the correct footwear on the walks and trails. Walk in a group, wear a hat and take water to drink.
• Do not approach or attempt to feed any animal, they are wild and your actions could put both you and the animal in danger.
• Enjoy a picnic in the Garden, leave only your foot prints. Note our "Carry-in Carry-out" litter policy - please take home everything you bring in. More information. (link to 'Why are there no dustbins...)
• No picnics are permitted at the waterfall. 14000 pairs of feet walk there every month! The lawn is unable to take the extra wear and tear picnics cause.
