Visit the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden

Frolic in fynbos (native 'fine leafed' bush); 190.5 ha of natural fynbos and 10 ha of cultivated fynbos flower from Cape coastline to mountain hump at the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden. Beach dunes replace shells and driftwood with salt-adapting plants. Slopes slip into green gradients gardened with waterfalls and amber pools. Indigenous plant life morphs from flatland to forest, moving marsh to mountain, grading grass to gorge, handing heathland to heavens.

Famed flora flaunts its beauty unfolding ecosystems of elements and animals. Blush like the pink Protea's petals as 88 bird species whistle you a song. Bring a picnic basket and a sketchpad and savour the bliss. Bring the dog and take to the trails. Bring the kids and roll on the lawn. Bring Granny for scones and memories at the coffee shop. Bring green fingers and purchase nursery bulbs. This Westcoast landscape showcases all Cape seasons flourishing with life from sand to soil. Enjoy the sunshine, shrubs and sometimes Summer concerts.

The peaceful garden includes sweeping mountain slopes, deep gorges, and four vegetation types that occur naturally in the Overberg - afro montane forests, wetlands, coastal dunes and fynbos. For additional info see Harold Porter National Botanical Garden - it is a magical display of proteas, ericas, leucadendrons and restios set amidst meandering nature trails.
