The Stellenbosch Botanical Garden is the oldest university botanic garden in South Africa. The Garden is beautifully maintained and includes three glass houses (tropical-, succulent- and karoo houses), Lotus lily / Koi fish pond, Japanese Garden, Herb Garden and arboretum.

The garden is widely regarded as an open-air laboratory and serves as a centre for training, science, conservation and recreation. For this purpose rare plants have been imported from all over the world. This Botanical Garden, a mostly undiscovered gem in the historical centre of Stellenbosch, gives joy to all its visitors. The garden is small and compact, but time and again visitors are surprised by the atmosphere and the variety of plants and plant products found here.
