Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden

Against the backdrop of the magnificent Witpoortjie waterfall, this Garden covers almost 300 hectares and consists of both landscaped and natural veld areas.

This Botanical Garden was founded in 1982, but has been a popular venue for outings since the 1800's. The Garden has been voted the best picnic spot in Gauteng for 5 years in a row.

The natural vegetation of the area is known as the 'Rocky Highveld Grassland' and consists of a mosaic of grassland and savanna, with dense bush in kloofs and along streams. The variety of habitats accommodates over 600 naturally occurring plant species.

A breeding pair of majestic Verreaux's Eagles nest on the cliffs alongside the waterfall. The Garden is home to an abundance of wildlife. Over 220 birds species recorded on site. There are also a number of reptile and small mammals, including small antelope and jackal, which occur naturally in the Nature Reserve.
