About Visit the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens

One of the great escapes of Johannesburg, the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden in Roodepoort, is almost 300 hectares of landscaped and natural veld that is a haven for birds and a popular picnic spot for Gautengers.

One can arrange guided tours along the Roodekrans Ridge and through the Nature Reserve part of the garden, and the dam and wetland area with its bird hide alone is worth the visit, particularly at sundown just before the gates close. There is a lot of shaded lawn on which Jo’burgers while away balmy days with a bring-along picnic. The nursery sells a variety of indigenous plants, and children enjoy the vast lawn areas where people picnic or simply relax. For additional information see Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens.
